The Story of Beatrix Potter

Sarah Gristwood

Description

This illustrated biography of Beatrix Potter is now available in a smaller, more affordable format.

Few people realise how extraordinary Beatrix Potter's own story is. She was a woman of contradictions. A sheltered Victorian daughter who grew into an astute modern businesswoman. A talented artist who became a scientific expert. A famous author who gave it all up to become a farmer, then a pioneering conservationist.

Sarah Gristwood follows the twists and turns of Beatrix Potter's life and its key turning points – including her tragically brief first engagement and happy second marriage late in life. She traces the creation of Beatrix's most famous characters – including the naughty Peter Rabbit, confused Jemima Puddleduck and cheeky Squirrel Nutkin – revealing how she drew on her unusual childhood pets and locations in her beloved Lake District.
