A unique look at the history, culture, tradition, and environmental impact of honey

The Honey Trail is a global travel narrative that looks at different aspects of how honey and bees are being affected by globalization, terrorism, deforestation, the global food trade, and climate change. This unique book not only questions the state of our environment and the impact it is having on bees and honey, it also takes readers on an adventure across Yemeni deserts and Borneo jungles, through the Mississippi Delta and Tasmania’s rainforests, over frozen Siberian snowscapes and ancient Turkish villages all in search of the liquid gold known as honey.

Including fascinating insights such as:
• A bee produces only a teaspoon of honey in its lifetime
• China is the world’s largest honey producer
• Honey is only used as medicine in Borneo
• There are more than thirty-five mono-floral honeys in Tuscany.
