The Honey Bus:A Memoir of Loss, Courage and a Girl Saved by Bees

Sebastopol -An extraordinary story of a girl, her grandfather and one of nature's most mysterious and beguiling creatures: the honeybee. Meredith May recalls the first time a honeybee crawled on her arm. She was five years old, her parents had recently split and suddenly she found herself in the care of her grandfather, an eccentric beekeeper who made honey in a rusty old military bus in the yard. That first close encounter was at once terrifying and exhilarating for May, and in that moment she discovered that everything she needed to know about life and family was right before her eyes, in the secret world of bees. Part memoir, part beekeeping odyssey, The Honey Bus is an unforgettable story about finding a home in the most unusual of places, and how a tiny, little-understood insect could save a life.


AUTHOR: Meredith May spent sixteen years at the San Francisco Chronicle, where her narrative reporting won the PEN USA Literary Award for Journalism and was shortlisted for the Pulitzer Prize. May is a fifth-generation beekeeper and lives in San Francisco, where she keeps several hives in a community garden.
