The Hive and the Honey Bee has been around for many years. It started out as Langstroth on the Hive and the Honey-Bee in 1853, at the dawn of modern beekeeping.
Lorenzo Langstroth, often referred to as the father of modern beekeeping, discovered the principle of bee space, which made removable frame hives possible.
Over the years, The Hive and the Honey Bee has evolved into one of the most extensive collections of beekeeping knowledge contained in one volume.
At more than 1300 pages, this book will keep you busy for a while if you decide to read it cover to cover.
And it's entertaining enough to read cover-to-cover. I've done so a couple of times!
I would consider this a must-have book for every beekeeper.
The Hive and the Honey Bee is available online at Amazon.com.
