Summary
"From honeybees and bumbles to lesser-known diggers, miners, leafcutters and maons, bees have long been central to our harvests, our mythologies and aour very existence. They've given us sweetness and light, the beauty of flowers and as much as a third of the foodstuffs we eat. And, alarmingly, they are at risk of disappearing."--Jacket
