The Sacred Bee (Hilda Ransome)

The Sacred Bee (Hilda Ransome)

No creature has provided man with so much wholesome food as the honey bee.  Equally impressive is the number of beliefs and superstitions the industrious insect has inspired.  Its honey, which was known to the ancient Greeks as the "Food of the Gods," played an important role in early religious rites and was also mentioned in the folklore of many peoples.  Hild Ransome's well-documented and copiously illustrated study focuses on this valuable by-product of nature and its creator - the "sacred" bee.
