Although beekeepers have been harvesting honey from hives since prehistoric times, the book Beeconomy might be the first time a connection has been made between women and the insects.
This is author Tammy Horn’s second book about these phenomenal insects. For this one, Horn traveled to five continents to learn about beekeeping and how women have played a role in its history. The book covers commun-ications, mortality and the complexity of female bee relationships. Horn also highlights her travels with anecdotes about female beekeepers in various countries and situations.
