5.0 out of 5 stars Beginners "must read", 8 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A great guide for beginners to Natural Beekeeping, with valuable information for the more experienced too. The book is well laid out and readable from cover to cover, with a great index if you want to dip in for information and tips later. Well done Christy!

This is a very well written and useful book from a maker of top bar hives. The book covers the first year of beekeeping in the top bar hive. I think it should be read if you are contemplating this method and there are compelling reasons for trying it even if you are not as laid out in the book. If you are going to make your own hive do also have a look at "Why not top bar hives" by J R Slade as there is plenty of scope for alternative designs and you need to think hard before getting out the saws and buying wood which is not cheap these days! The book "the thinking beekeeper" is a must read for starting out, however. The reason it doesn't get the full five stars is that I would have liked to see another chapter on making a nucleus, swarm control etc. with some colour pictures of the manipulations required. The author has her own firm which makes top bar hives in the US which might pose some questions of shipping them to other parts of the world but you can buy her specially shaped top bars separately which the bees like to line up their combs along the bar.
