    The Australian Native Bee Book

    I brought this book as a gift for my husband who teaches science, thinking it would be a good reference book. But I got reading it, and discovered so much about our native Aussie bees it was a wonderful surprise! Well researched, easy to read information, with lots of practical hints for those who want to encourage or keep native bee hives. Highly recommend just for the joy of it.
