Sting in the tale (vintage classics)
The Birds and the Bees series was designed for Vintage Classics by Timorous Beasties, the Scottish studio famous for their designs inspired by the natural world
As a small boy, Dave Goulson was obsessed with wildlife, from his childhood menagerie of exotic pets to his ill-fated experiments with taxidermy. But it was the bumblebee that fascinated him the most. The short-haired bumblebee is now extinct in the UK, but still lives in the wilds of New Zealand, descended from a few queen bees shipped over in the nineteenth century. With ground-breaking research into these curious creatures, A Sting in the Tale tells the story of Goulson’s passionate drive to reintroduce them to their native land.
