Beatrix Potter: A Life in Nature by Linda Lear

Potter found freedom from her conventional Victorian upbringing in the countryside. Nature inspired her imagination as an artist and scientific illustrator, but The Tale of Peter Rabbit brought her fame, financial success, and marriage to her editor. After her husband’s death, she embraced a new life as visionary landowner, successful farmer and sheep-breeder, allowing her the ability to preserve the landscape that had inspired her art.
