About this book
Goulson, currently regarded as the leading bee expert in the UK media, is passionate about reintroducing the short-haired bumblebee to its native land - Britain. This book combines Gerald-Durrell-esque tales of a child's growing passion for nature with a deep insight into the crucial importance of the bumblebee - a creature of media preoccupation.
The author has always been obsessed with wildlife, from his childhood menagerie of exotic pets and dabbling in experimental taxidermy to his groundbreaking research into the mysterious ways of the bumblebee and his mission to protect our rarest bees. This book tells the story of his passionate drive.
