I shall never forget the ashy faces of the passengers as they stampeded for their life-belts, though there was no panic. Nobs rose with a low growl. I rose, also, and over the ship's side, I saw not two hundred yards distant the periscope of a submarine, while racing toward the liner the wake of a torpedo was distinctly visible. We were aboard an American ship-which, of course, was not armed. We were entirely defenseless; yet without warning, we were being torpedoed.I stood rigid, spellbound, watching the white wake of the torpedo. It struck us on the starboard side almost amidships. The vessel rocked as though the sea beneath it had been uptorn by a mighty volcano. We were thrown to the decks, bruised and stunned, and then above the ship, carrying with it fragments of steel and wood and dismembered human bodies, rose a column of water hundreds of feet into the air.

Quick read on the life of bees and specifically honeybees. The book includes their economic worth along side their potential medical benefits. Includes mythology and history of honeybees and humans. Includes a brief outlook on their hives, lives and communications. Many warnings are given for the future of bees and the environment in general. This is a small book(literally) and takes a short time to read.
