Additional Notes

From The Publisher*

A wonderfully thorough immersion in the world of bees and beekeeping. More Than Honey leaves one with reverence for this six-legged miracle, and profound concern about the future it faces." - Rowan Jacobsen, author of Fruitless Fall

A fascinating look at the increasingly perilous world of the honeybee-based on an award-winning documentary

The saying goes that without bees, humankind would only survive for four more years; these crucial pollinators are, indeed, worth more than honey. In More Than Honey, Marcus Imhoof and Claus-Peter Lieckfeld examine the history and current status of our relationship to and reliance on bees while exposing the human behaviors contributing to the decline of the bee population-a decline that could ultimately contribute directly to a world food problem. Illustrated with jaw-droppingly detailed photos of bees, More Than Honey is a fascinating, accessible overview of a species that is inextricably tied to our survival.
