Suburban Safari

From an amazing writer and friend of the store, Hanna Holmes, this is one of our favorite books.  Ms. Holmes spent a year exploring, studying, and coming to understand the ecosystem of her own yard in South Portland.  She writes about it with such wit and breezy ease you might just forget you're reading about science and you'll learn a bunch of stuff while you're laughing.

Suburban Safari doesn't have much to say about honeybees and beekeeping, but backyard beekeepers should try to understand our ecosystem and our place in it.  If you don't find this book both entertaining and illuminating there is just something wrong with you.
