Sue Hubbell's chronicle of beekeeping and life in the Ozark Mountains is obviously a reading from text. Her anecdotes and reflections offer an interesting view of this rural life, but Hubbell may not be the best choice of narrator to bring the account alive. The material is an oral history and would benefit from more energy which the author exhibits in her life, but not in the narration. Hubbell's voice is pleasant and clear, but the tone and pace are monotonous. Natural sounds, such as bees and peepers, provide infrequent breaks in tone. The clarity of the recording is excellent, and the program will interest those who prefer a neutral presentation. R.F.W. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: MAR 94]
