Meet the 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.

    MORE THAN PETER RABBIT

    This is a well written, intensely researched biography. Beatrice Potter was very interesting. I did not know all the dimensions of her life and her intense striving. Anyone who enjoys a good, deep, complicated biography will be glad to read this one.

    This is an exceptional biography of Beatrix's life and work. Tho

    This is an exceptional biography of Beatrix's life and work. Thoroughly researched, this book includes much detail on her family and relations, her homes and farms, her animal and plant (and fungi) inspirations, her meticulous painting and writing, her generous efforts for conservation, her love for Herdwick and oak furniture, and so much more. If you are looking for an in-depth biography, you will not be disappointed - 447 pages of fascinating facts. Though a few times Linda Lear's presentation of the facts can be a little hard to get through, however the vast majority had me captured and feeling like I was in Beatrix's shoes, or muddy boots rather! There are also four sections included that have photographs of Beatrix (young and old) and notable persons, and color renditions of her artwork. I highly recommend this biography to anyone interested in an honorable woman whose life and legacy are truly inspirational.
