9781908904126: Bee-Master Revisited, the Autobiography of George Wakeford

Bee-Master Revisited is a revised autobiography of George Wakeford, BEM, a celebrated Sussex Master Beekeeper. Hisuncanny expertise in the handling of bees and his service to hundreds ofnovices and clients earned him a reputation as a country genius not only amonghis fellow beekeepers but also with 'lay' persons, journalists, localhistorians and TV producers alike. With his passing in 1985, any chance of him revisinghis slim autobiography was lost. His little book was long out of print and hardto find, even second-hand. Those who knew him or learned of his remarkable lifeand accomplishments have requested a reissue. NBB welcomed this opportunity butconsidered that his fascinating life story, as he tells it in his naturalSussex way, is far too modest and brief to do the man justice. Accordingly Geoffrey Lawes, withthe substantial assistance of Roger Patterson and George's daughter Josie, hasedited his original work, and added much background detail which supportsGeorge's text. He enlarges on his life story, offers lucidity on elementarybeekeeping, provides generous early 20th century photographs andgives a concrete realisation of country life as lived by a unique Englishcountryman.
