Content descriptions

General Note: Includes index.
Contents Note: Two lives -- Storms -- Honeybees and congressen -- Simple -- On the road again -- The wisdom of the hive -- Adrenaline and meditation.
Summary: Environmentalist and author McKibben recounts a year he spent in the company of a beekeeper, raising his hives as part of the growing trend toward local food. Other solutions to the global climate fight would come from a much larger struggle against the fossil-fuel industry as a whole. This book is his account of these two necessary and mutually reinforcing sides of the issue--from the absolute center of the maelstrom and from the growing hive of small-scale local answers to the climate crisis.
