Broadsides from the other orders : a book of bugs by Sue Hubbell( Book )

8 editions published between 1993 and 1998 in English and held by 1,176 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Did you know that for every pound of human beings in the world there are estimated to be three hundred pounds of bugs? That 25 percent of all animal species are beetles? That dragonflies can fly sixty miles per hour? That there may be fifty million midges in a single swarm?" "Whether or not you are curious about insects, Broadsides from the Other Orders is a bewitching mixture of facts of nature and perceptive reflections. The author of A Country Year and A Book of Bees now turns her attention to butterflies, midges and gnats, ladybugs, daddy longlegs, black flies, so-called killer bees, water striders, silverfish, katydids, dragonflies, gypsy moths, syrphid flies, and camel crickets. Aside from the fact that among themselves entomologists call all of them bugs, these insects have little in common; each is unique, plays a distinct role in its own ecosystem, and is as interesting to read about as is the most complex human being." "A poll once revealed that 90 percent of all Americans profess to hate bugs, but Sue Hubbell writes with such wonder, affection, authority, and wit about these tiny creatures that any reader of this book will become absorbed by them as well. Her enchantment with them, and with the scientists who study them, some of whom we meet here, is further evidence that, in the words of The New York Times Book Review, "the real masterwork that Sue Hubbell has created is her life.""--Jacket

A country year : living the questions by Sue Hubbell( Book )

6 editions published between 1987 and 2017 in 3 languages and held by 279 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A "delightful, witty" memoir about starting over as a beekeeper in the Ozarks (Library Journal). Alone on a small Missouri farm after a thirty-year marriage, Sue Hubbell found a new love-of the winged, buzzing variety. Left with little but the commercial beekeeping and honey-producing business she started with her husband, Hubbell found solace in the natural world. Then she began to write, challenging herself to tell the absolute truth about her life and the things she cared about. Describing the ups and downs of beekeeping from one springtime to the next, A Country Year transports readers to a different, simpler place. In a series of exquisite vignettes, Hubbell reveals the joys of a life attuned to nature in this heartfelt memoir about life on the land, and of a woman finding her way in middle age. "Once in a while there comes along a book so calm, so honest, so beautiful that even the most jaded or cynical readers have to say thank you ... ' This is such a book" (TheSan Diego Union-Tribune)

Starting over : A country year and A book of bees by Sue Hubbell( )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A pair of memoirs about a woman starting her life over as a beekeeper in the Ozarks, from "a latter-day Henry Thoreau with a sense of the absurd" (Chicago Tribune). Taken together, the "steadily eloquent" national bestseller, A Country Year, and its follow-up, A Book of Bees, a New York Times Notable Book, offer a moving and fascinating chronicle of Sue Hubbell's seasonal second life as a commercial beekeeper (The Washington Post). Alone on a small Missouri farm after the end of a thirty-year marriage, Hubbell found a new love-of the winged, buzzing variety. Left with little but the commercial beekeeping and honey-producing business she started with her husband, Hubbell found solace in the natural world, as well as in writing about her experience. In evocative vignettes, she takes readers through the seasonal cycle of her life as a beekeeper, offering exquisitely rendered details of hives, harvests, and honey, while also reflecting on deeper questions. As the New York Times wrote: "The real masterwork that Sue Hubbell has created is her life."
