Book Description
Ever since men first hunted for honeycomb in rocks and daubed pictures of it on cave walls, the honeybee has been seen as one of the wonders of nature: social, industrious, beautiful, terifying. No other creature has inspired in human an identification so passionate, persistent, or fantastical. In this gem of a book, award-winning writer Bee Wilson explores the magical world of the tupeloforests of modern Florida, taking in a cast of characters including Alexander the Great and Napoleon , Sherlock Holmes and Muhammad Ali. With delights and surprises at every turn, Wilson shows how humans will always view the hive as a miniature universe with order and purpose, and look to it to make sense of their own.
