Anarchy Apiaries Almanac (2010 edition)

Postby tom » Thu Mar 10, 2016 8:17 am

This is a great little free book from the inimitable Sam Comfort of Anarchy Apiaries.
There was another little pocketbook edition of his almanac from 2012, but the 2010 version is a fantastic sprawling poetic journey through Sam's personal experience with bees - starting as a memoir of his time with a commercial beekeeping outfit to his gradual revelations about small cell beekeeping, top bars and taking a natural approach. The book is peppered with line drawings, poems, good-natured rants and a lot of precious common sense.

If anything, it reminded me most of Woody Guthrie's "Bound for Glory", but if the narrator was a beekeeper rather than a dustbowl balladeer.

Here's a link to the page with a free download of the book, definitely worth a read:
