"This book clarifies fundamental changes that can transform our relationship with bees into one of deep partnership. In her compelling interweave of personal story, unique "from the bees" communications, and her years of beekeepingexperience, Jacqueline invites us into an even larger and imperative conversation we all must begin with each other and with bees so their long-term survival is ensured."
The Shamanic Way of The Bee is another great piece of literature focusing on similar realities involving the honey bee. Jacqueline's book is superb as well! I've actually had the pleasure of meeting her in person! May we change the way we view and care for bees for the positive!
I give this book 9 out of 10 acorns. (Edited to add this acorn score for our book review system on permies - and the podcast review link, below.)
I just updated this thread for the new edition of Jacqueline's book. Paul and I are listening to it on Audible, where Jacqueline reads most of it herself. She is amazing at doing the narration! At first, we were not sure if we liked the co-narrator, Robin Wise, but her style grew on us and we appreciate it now. Jacqueline narrates most of the book, and Robin reads the "in their own words" portions, where it's useful to have a different voice.
