Beekeeping Made Easy is the name of the book I am writing on Beekeeping.  It is designed to be a how-to, step-by-step guide to beekeeping.  Chapter 3, "Beginning Beekeeping," takes one through the 1st year explaining  what a beekeeper should find when he enters a hive, what to look for, how to correct problems, and speed up hive development by manipulating frames.  Chapter 4, "General Beekeeping," expands into other topics a beekeeper should be aware of.
Chapter 1 is "How I Got Started in Beekeeping," while Chapter 2 explains the different types of bee equipment and how they are used, along with the traditional names of some equipment that has become confused or have regional names.
The book has 14 chapters plus a glossary.

I am in need of illustrations for the book.  If you have pictures that you think might contribute to the book please contact me at my personal email address of b.d.bray@hotmail.com.  All photos used will have credit for their use.

This book comes about after teaching several 3 hour courses over a 5 week period, total 15 hours, on beekeeping and feedback from my students.

Brian, best of luck with your book, we've all been wondering what you've been up to. As mentioned, try not to be a total stranger.  grin

JP,

I have one chapter dedicated to Cut-outs, Trap-outs, & Bee trees, surely you have some photos in those areas.

Always interested in photos that highlight the unusual about beekeeping.

Just to be specific, I am recommending only two web sites about beekeeping in my upcoming book, Bee Master's International Forum and Michael Bush's web site.  I'm limiting my recommendations to only the best.

More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....
