Bee People and the Bugs They Love by Frank Mortimer Book Resume:

“A successful and funny book that is sure to swell the ranks of the world’s beekeepers.” —New York Times A fascinating foray into the obsessions, friendships, scientific curiosity, misfortunes and rewards of suburban beekeeping—through the eyes of a Master Beekeeper . . . Who wants to keep bees? And why? For the answers, Master Beekeeper Frank Mortimer invites readers on an eye-opening journey into the secret world of bees, and the singular world of his fellow bee-keepers. There’s the Badger, who introduces Frank to the world of bees; Rusty, a one-eyed septuagenarian bee sting therapist certain that honey will be the currency of the future after the governments fail; Scooby the “dude” who gets a meditative high off the awesome vibes of his psychedelia-painted hives; and the Berserker, a honeybee hitman who teaches Frank a rafter-raising lesson in staving off the harmful influences of an evil queen: “Squash her, mash her, kill, kill, kill!” Frank also crosses paths with those he calls the Surgeons (precise and protected), the Cowboys (improvisational and unguarded) and the Poseurs, ex-corporate cogs, YouTube-informed and ill-prepared for the stinging reality of their new lives. In connecting with this club of disparate but kindred spirits, Frank discovers the centuries-old history of the trade; the practicality of maintaining it; what bees see, think, and feel (emotionless but sometimes a little defensive); how they talk to each other and socialize; and what can be done to combat their biggest threats, both human (anti-apiarist extremists) and mite (the Varroa Destructor). With a swarm of offbeat characters and fascinating facts (did that bee just waggle or festoon?), Frank the Bee Man delivers an informative, funny, and galvanizing book about the symbiotic relationship between flower and bee, and bee and the beekeepers who are determined to protect the existence of one of the most beguiling and invaluable creatures on earth. “A very entertaining book.” —American Bee Journal “A playful storyteller… A compelling memoir.” —Foreword Reviews “A useful how-to guide as well as an affectionate ode to nature’s pollinators and honey makers.” —Publishers Weekly “This book includes great humor and a use of allegory that reveals tremendous background knowledge.” —San Francisco Book Review “Frank’s personal stories of his beekeeping journey are entertaining, well written, and will quickly have you happily lost in the world of bees.” —Paleo Magazine "Bee People and the Bugs They Love is the bee's knees and getting a ton of buzz. Bee smart, people, and read this un-BEE-lievably interesting look at the quirky world of beekeeping." —Harlan Coben, #1 New York Times bestselling author “A delightful portrayal for non-beekeepers of what life is like for those of us who are always thinking about bees.” —Tom Seeley, author of The Lives of Bees “A fun and exciting tale of the wonder-filled world of beginner beekeeping.” —Noah Wilson-Rich, author of Bee: A Natural History , and CEO and partner The Best Bees Company

Elizabeth I and Her Circle by Susan Doran Book Resume:

This is the inside story of Elizabeth I's inner circle and the crucial human relationships which lay at the heart of her personal and political life. Using a wide range of original sources — including private letters, portraits, verse, drama, and state papers — Susan Doran provides a vivid and often dramatic account of political life in Elizabethan England and the queen at its centre, offering a deeper insight into Elizabeth's emotional and political conduct — and challenging many of the popular myths that have grown up around her. It is a story replete with fascinating questions. What was the true nature of Elizabeth's relationship with her father, Henry VIII, especially after his execution of her mother? What was the influence of her step-mothers on Elizabeth's education and religious beliefs? How close was she really to her half-brother Edward VI — and were relations with her half-sister Mary really as poisonous as is popularly assumed? And what of her relationship with her Stewart cousins, most famously with Mary Queen of Scots, executed on Elizabeth's orders in 1587, but also with Mary's son James VI of Scotland, later to succeed Elizabeth as her chosen successor? Elizabeth's relations with her family were crucial, but almost as crucial were her relations with her courtiers and her councillors (her 'men of business'). Here again, the story unravels a host of fascinating questions. Was the queen really sexually jealous of her maids of honour? What does her long and intimate relationship with the Earl of Leicester reveal about her character, personality, and attitude to marriage? What can the fall of Essex tell us about Elizabeth's political management in the final years of her reign? And what was the true nature of her personal and political relationship with influential and long-serving councillors such as the Cecils and Sir Francis Walsingham?

L’Invention de la nature by Andrea Wulf Book Resume:

Naturaliste, géographe, explorateur, Alexander von Humboldt (1769-1859) est le grand scientifique des Lumières. Il a donné son nom à des villes, des rivières, des chaînes de montagnes, à un courant océanique d’Amérique du Sud, à un manchot, à un calmar géant – il existe même une Mare Humboldtianum sur la Lune. Sous la plume d’Andrea Wulf, sa vie se lit comme un roman d’aventures : Humboldt a organisé des expéditions dans la forêt tropicale, escaladé les plus hauts volcans du monde et rencontré des princes et des présidents, des scientifiques et des poètes. Napoléon le jalousait ; Simón Bolívar s’est imprégné de ses idées pour mener à bien sa révolution ; Darwin a embarqué sur le Beagle à cause de lui ; et le capitaine Nemo de Jules Verne possédait tous ses livres dans sa bibliothèque. À une époque où l’on pouvait embrasser toutes les connaissances scientifiques, Humboldt n’a cessé d’arpenter le monde pour en déceler les secrets et les expliquer. En 1800 déjà, il prédisait les changements climatiques causés par l’homme. Ses idées ont révolutionné la science, la politique, l’art et la théorie de l’évolution. Grand visionnaire, amoureux du monde vivant, de ses mystères et de ses beautés, Humboldt a inventé la nature telle que nous la percevons aujourd’hui.

La vie secrète des vaches by Rosamund Young Book Resume:

À la Kite’s Nest Farm, les vaches vivent en liberté. Chippy refuse de dormir avec les pieds boueux et fait toujours sa toilette avant de se coucher. Fat Hat préfère la présence des hommes à celle des femmes. Le vice caché de Jake est de renifler les émanations du tuyau d’échappement du Land Rover. Colérique et farouchement indépendante, Gemima salue tous les humains qu’elle rencontre d’un hochement de tête. Dans son délicieux et très inattendu ouvrage, Rosamund Young nous donne des chroniques affectueuses, drôles et touchantes du monde des vaches avec lesquelles elle vit depuis plus de cinquante ans. Loin de l’agriculture intensive, respectueuse de l’environnement, elle nous offre ici le plus convaincant et le plus amusant des plaidoyers contre la souffrance animale. « Rosamund Young a écrit un livre d’observation, d’affection, d’amitié. Rosamund Young a écrit un livre de tendresse, de compassion, de complicité. Rosamund Young a écrit, oui, c’est bien ça, un livre d’amour pour les vaches. » FRANÇOIS MOREL Traduit de l’anglais par Sabine Porte
