Explores the relationship between Beatrix Potter's beloved Lake District and her world-famous literary work.

Publisher Description

As an artist and storyteller Beatrix Potter is world-famous. Of no less importance is her work in protecting some of the finest examples of the Lake District's landscapes and in creating romantic interiors and a beautiful garden at Hill Top, the farmhouse she bought at Near Sawrey in 1905. Her picturesque house and the breathtaking scenery inspired many of Beatrix's stories and drawings. This book looks at the relationship between the Lake District and her work and includes numerous extracts from her letters and diaries, as well as atmospheric photographs from the Beatrix Potter archive.

Will delight the many admirers of the artist and writer of children's books. Lakeland Echo A lovely book which has successfully knitted the many strands of Beatrix Potter's life into a delightful tale. Keswick Reminder A must for those who want an intimate insight into Potter's private world. Westmorland Gazette
