Beatrix Potter is the twentieth century's most beloved children's writer and illustrator. Yet though she is a household name around the world, her personal life and her other significant achievements remain largely unknown. This biography reveals a strong, humorous and independent woman, whose art was timeless.
Linda Lear has always been intrigued by how the lives of arts and writers have been influenced by the natural world. She discovered quite by accident that before Potter began her legendary series of 'little books' for children she had been an avid student of natural history. A professor of environmental history and author of the prize winning biography Rachel Carson: Witness for Nature, Lear is an enthusiastic horticulturalist and collector of botanical art. She and her husband live in Bethesda, Maryland.
