In the preface to this book, author Keith Delaplane says of his first book on beekeeping, "Its pages opened to me a golden world of honey bees and beekeeping and guided my stumbling steps that first spring season. My story is but one of thousands who have passed through the door opened by Dadant's little book."
This book mainly covers tendencies found when working hives as a beginner in the USA, however, many lessons and teachings are shared across continents.
