Learning Life Lessons From Bees


Maybe you've heard of someone with a wild disposition described as "raised by wolves."  Meredith May insists she was raised by bees. 

Her parents split up when she was five and brought her to live with a grandfather.  He happened to be a beekeeper, and the lessons he taught about bee care and feeding applied well to the rest of life. 

Meredith May tells the story in The Honey Bus: A Memoir of Loss, Courage and a Girl Saved by Bees.  The author visits with an overview of her story.
