Re: old online beekeeping books i found
Yes I agree, the old books that are out of copyright have more valuable information in them than most of the more modern books for beekeeping.
I have both those books and more and have found a great resource on... http://books.google.com just do a search and limit the results to full view books only. Do a search for beekeeping. or Queen rearing. or search by author. I've found many nice old PDF format books there.
Live life with gusto, having no regrets, being thankful every day, and cherish each moment as it happens.
