Overview

This highly illustrated biography looks at the iconic work and fascinating life of one of our national treasures, Beatrix Potter.

Bestselling historian Sarah Gristwood follows Potter from her constricted Victorian childhood to the success and tragedy of the years 1901-13, when she published nearly all her major books yet was denied love by the death of her fiance.

Finally, she traces the last 30 years of Potter's life, when she abandoned books to become a working farmer and pioneer of the conservation movement in the early days of the National Trust.

Illustrated throughout, special features throughout the book will show how Beatrix Potter developed many of her most famous characters, including Peter Rabbit, Mrs Tiggy-Winkle and Jemima Puddleduck.

Beatrix Potter was strongly involved with the early days of the National Trust, and left over 4000 acres of land in the Lake District to us. Her home, Hill Top, attracts hundreds of thousands of visitors a year.
