THE BEEKEEPER'S LAMENT How One Man and Half a Billion Honey Bees Help Feed America

by | Read by Xe Sands

Biography & Memoir • 7 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2011

Xe Sands gives voice to this in-depth look at the plight of an American migratory beekeeper. The author tells the story of John Miller, one of the foremost beekeepers in the field, with an investigator's probe and a consumer's fascination. Sands adds to that mix with a tender respect for the man and his productive insects. She paces her reading of this in a way that evokes the isolated and wide-open environment of North Dakota. Author's and narrator's combined efforts make beekeeping a fascinating topic, if not quite an alluring profession. Listeners interested in the environment or the state of agriculture and food production will find much to enjoy in this insightful audiobook.
