14. Bees in America: How the Honey Bee Shaped a Nation

Author: by Tammy Horn
352 pages

View on Amazon

Honey beesand the qualities associated with themhave quietly influenced American values for four centuries. During every major period in the country’s history, bees and beekeepers have represented order and stability in a country without a national religion, political party, or language.

Bees in America is an enlightening cultural history of bees and beekeeping in the United States. Tammy Horn, herself a beekeeper, offers a varied social and technological history from the colonial period, when the British first introduced bees to the New World, to the present, when bees are being used by the American military to detect bombs.

Early European colonists introduced bees to the New World as part of an agrarian philosophy borrowed from the Greeks and Romans. Their legacy was intended to provide sustenance and a livelihood for immigrants in search of new opportunities, and the honey bee became a sign of colonization, alerting Native Americans to settlers’ westward advance.

Colonists imagined their own endeavors in terms of bees’ hallmark traits of industry and thrift and the image of the busy and growing hive soon shaped American ideals about work, family, community, and leisure. The image of the hive continued to be popular in the eighteenth century, symbolizing a society working together for the common good and reflecting Enlightenment principles of order and balance.
