Description

Beatrix Potter's books are adored by millions, but they were just one aspect of an extraordinary life. This captivating biography brings us the passionate, unconventional woman behind the beloved stories: a gifted artist and shrewd businesswoman; a pioneering scientific researcher; a powerful landowner who conserved acres of Lakeland countryside; a daughter who defied her parents with her first tragically short engagement and who, finally was given a second chance of love and happiness.

About Author

Always intrigued by how the lives of artists and writers have been influenced by the natural world, Linda Lear discovered quite by accident that Beatrix Potter had passions and interests way beyond those of her legendary series of little books for children. A professor of environmental history and the author of the prize-winning biography, Rachel Carson: Witness of Nature, Lear is an enthusiastic horticulturalist and collector of botanical art.
