The beekeeper is Michael Bush, who has gained an international reputation as an organic beekeeper. The book is simply a printed compilation of the information he’s posted over the years on the Bush Bees beekeeping Web site.

On July 1, I had the privilege of donning a bee suit and joining Michael at his farm south of Greenwood to photograph the bees. It wasn’t that hot — yet.
