Beatrix Potter's Gardening Life: The Plants and Places That Inspired the Classic Children's Tales, by Marta McDowell
Description of Beatrix Potter's Gardening Life
Beatrix Potter, author of the famous Peter Rabbit chidren's books, was for long thought of merely as the writer of simple children's stories. Her work as one of the people whose passion for the Lake District led to the creation of the National Trust certainly was recognised but it is mostly in recent years that she has come to be seen as a substantial artist with a considerable botanical knowledge. Her work now at the Armitt Museum in Ambleside testifies to this. Several books also now exist that treat her as a much more rounded personality than the conventional view. This is one of them.
Marta McDowell has written a book that brings to life not only Beatrix Potter herself but also the environment in which her famous stories and their characters were created. In doing so she has drawn on many sources including Beatrix's diaries and letters.
