“The Beekeeper’s Lament: How One Man and Half a Billion Honey Bees Help Feed America” by Hannah Nordhaus
Read by Xe Sands; Tantor Audio; Seven Hours

Fans of science, bees, cultural history, and memoir will enjoy this nonfiction work. Author Hannah Nordhaus follows a small but dedicated group of beekeepers who pollinate American crops by literally trucking their colonies to farms across the country. Her writing can be a bit glib and occasionally disjointed, but overall, this audiobook is compelling for three reasons: The fascinating story of beekeeper John Miller and his cohort, Nordhaus’ explanation of bee culture, and her breakdown of the likely causes of colony collapse disorder. Narrator Xe Sands is perfectly lively, chummy, and spirited. Grade: B+
