Holly Bishop

Six years ago, Holley Bishop, a New Yorker working in publishing and yearning for nature, bought a little farmhouse and a few private acres of her own in Connecticut. While figuring out how to be a weekend farmer, she visited a neighbor with beehives in his backyard. One drop of the fresh honey he had harvested himself ignited her interest in honeybees and their sweet liquid gold creation. After being seduced by the first real taste of honey, Bishop obtained two hives of her own, harvested her very own honey and became obsessed with bees, honey, and their role in human history.

As she became more involved in beekeeping, Bishop searched for the definitive book that could pull together the natural science, myths, and facts about bees and honey for a layperson like her. Since she couldn't find the book she wanted to read, she decided to write it herself. After spending thousands of hours observing bees, working with them, researching their history and lore, harvesting honey and tasting varieties of it from around the world, Bishop was inspired to write ROBBING THE BEES: A Biography of Honey, The Sweet Liquid Gold That Seduced the World . The culmination of her efforts and passion, ROBBING THE BEES is a comprehensive biography of honey and its benevolent insect-creators.
