As an artist and story-teller Beatrix Potter is world-famous. She also worked to protect some of the finest examples of the Lake District's landscapes and created 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, and this book looks at the intimate connection between the Lake District and her work. With numerous extracts from her letters and diaries, this illustrated book celebrates Potter's achievements in the Lake District and her major gifts to the National Trust.
