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 style 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, Oregon. Spiral Bound, 127 pages.
