Thor Hanson (ALLEN & UNWIN)
The buzz on bees is they are more important today than ever. Ubiquitous, essential and, for the most part, unseen, they are the beating heart that binds the human and natural worlds. Meticulously researched and an entertaining read, who would have guessed a book dedicated to bees could be so engrossing? Hanson is clearly a conversational biologist with a passion. A thoughtful gift for anyone fascinated with natural history and how bees impact our daily lives. Bee-witching!
