    When I tracked down this book, I was looking for "The Hopkins Method of Queen Rearing" in Hopkin's own words. When I found it and read it, I found so much more. Hopkins was a very practical beekeeper, and not just an academic beekeeper. The Australasian Bee Manual was probably the most...

    Not to plug "The Practical Beekeeper" but to say that I would like to have read it before I started this most rewarding endeavor. I started it last night and couldn't put it down.
