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. 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.
