Category: Biography

Beatrix Potter is known throughout the world for the genius of her illustrations and words. These stories of country life have remained childhood favourites for more than 100 years.

Born into a wealthy London family, Beatrix Potter became a passionate country woman and skilled farmer in the northern countryside, where her characters were brought vividly to life by the genius of her words and pictures. This is a story of her passions – her animals, the Lake District, the National Trust, countryside, her Herdwick sheep – and a story of how she  earned her much-deserved success with Peter Rabbit and friends.


Annie Bullen is a writer and journalist, and author of several guides to National Trust properties and Pitkin city guides.

Bullen published her first novel, Air and Angels, in 1987, and since then has become an expert on royal history.  Alongside her many books on the British royal family, Bullen also publishes guides to major British cities, and contributes articles to leading gardening magazines.
