Longhive Beekeeping, A Practical Guide is a 126 page E-Book by John Edwards. It features extensive instruction on horizontal beekeeping, and is replete with photos and diagrams.  it will come as a PDF file. 

Much has been written about beekeeping in vertically stacked hives such as the Langstroth hive. By comparison, beekeeping in longhives  (horizontal hives) is not well understood, particularly in western countries. This practical guide is an excellent primer for anyone thinking of starting a horizontal hive, whether it is Langstroth, Layens, or Kenya topbar.  It reviews longhive basics, colony installation, colony increase, seasonal management, hive inspections, requeening, honey production, and much more. John Edwards keeps bees in the Willamette Valley, as well as in the Columbia Gorge, Oregon.  An engineer by training, he has kept bees in the Pacific Northwest for over two decades.  He is founder/owner of Hive&Garden, and previously owner of  Ruhl Bee Supply.  He has written numerous field guides, and presents regularly on beekeeping in the Pacific Northwest.
