As you're spreading honey on your morning toast you probably aren't thinking about arms funding, terrorists, corporate scandals, contamination, smuggling rackets or environmental disaster. But according to the CIA, the honey business is crucial to Al Qaeda's operation, Chinese honey has been found to contain bee-drugs deadly to humans, and across Europe, Turkey, the US and Australia, bee hives are empty and no one knows why.

This engaging narrative non-fiction tale follows Grace Pundyk's journey from the wild Yemeni deserts to the jungles of Borneo, and from Russia to Tasmania's leatherwood forests, with Grace Pundyk many other honey-producing destinations in between. Grace follows the sticky trail of this ancient food, and the people who make their living from it, to uncover the truth behind this 'food of the gods'.
