This book recounts the remarkable experiences of John Miller, one of the foremost migratory beekeepers.  Despite mysterious epidemics that threaten American honey populations–and America’s agribusiness– John Miller forges on and moves ahead in a new natural world.  He travels the country with thousands of hives, seeking blooms and making honey.  Nordhaus explores the vital role beekeepers play in American agribusiness and in the maintenance of our food chain.  A fascinating read.
