Black lava rocks in Hawaii. A darkened gas station in Italy. The rooftops of Morocco. What do all these places have in common? Bees.
In Foraging Afar: Tales from a Decade of Beekeeping Across the Globe, William Blomstedt recaptures his experiences traveling as a commercial beekeeper to many different countries around the world—from the green pastures of New Zealand to the ancient temples of Thailand—looking for the next bee adventure.
These tales will make you laugh as his beekeeping buddies pass the time at a vacant airport in rural Montana, and they will make you cry when the hives he’s transporting topple along a Texas highway. Most important, these stories will show you how beekeepers work—and live—all over the world.
