  • "Honey has been waiting almost ten million years for a good biography. Bees have been making this prized food-for centuries the world's only sweetener-for millennia, but we humans started recording our fascination with it only in the past few thousand years. Part history, part love letter, Robbing the Bees is a celebration of bees and their magical produce, revealing the varied roles of bees and honey in nature, world civilization, business, and gastronomy." "To help navigate the worlds and cultures of honey, Bishop-beekeeper, writer, and honey aficionado-apprentices herself to Donald Smiley, a professional beekeeper who harvests tupelo honey in the Florida panhandle. She intersperses the lively lore and science of honey with lyrical reflections on her own and Smiley's beekeeping experiences. Its passionate research, rich detail, and fascinating anecdote and illustrations make Holley Bishop's Robbing the Bees a sumptuous look at the oldest, most delectable food in the world. Book jacket."--BOOK JACKET.
