Michael Duncan  UK    223 pages   Softback

This book takes the beginner through the whole beekeeping year, explaining the manipulative skills he needs to master, in order to care for in a humane manner, the honeybee.

Michael Duncan has kept bees since the late 1940s.  Most of his professional life was spent in the Birmingham area and wherever he went his bees went with him.  He kept them on rooftops in the old city centre and in the leafy suburbs of Harbourne.  After returning to Devon in the 1980s Michael became an Inspector of Bee Disease.  In the late 1990s, with some friends, he started 'The North Devon School of Gentle Beekeeping'.  The school has over a hundred ex-students practising beekeeping in Devon, Somerset and Dorset.


The book is not printed but 'hand written' giving it a lovely look and feel.  There are also beautiful illustrations throughout.
