"Finally - a beekeeping book that's truly for beginners. Amber walks the reader through all the basics of beekeeping with patience, a sense of humor, and honesty - including information many books skip. Well done."--Laurie Neverman, Common Sense Home

"A must-have resource for any beekeeper! We've had two hives for about four years and I still learned so much from this book. Before reading Amber's book I felt like I was winging everything we did with our colony. But now I feel confident to make the best decisions for our bees!"--Victoria Pruett, A Modern Homestead

"Amber passionately and beautifully expresses the necessity and how-tos of keeping bees. Her in-depth knowledge--from the legality of keeping bees, equipment necessary to the extracting of honey, and maintaining healthy hives--is evident throughout. Every chapter is filled with...instructions that will take you through the entire process of beekeeping."--Stacy Lyn Harris, TV Personality, Author of Stacy Lyn's Harvest Cookbook, Blogger at, and lover of bees!
