This 32 page booklet, glossily produced with many of Potter's own sketches, is a guide to the farmhouse in the Lake District which Beatrix had bought shortly after the death of her fiance, Norman Warne. The narrative gives a brief introduction to her later life as a Lakeland hill farmer, conservationist and early supporter of the National Trust and her late, happy marriage to local solicitor William Heelis. Most charmingly, the scenes of Sawrey used in some of her wonderful books, including Ginger and Pickles, Jemima Puddleduck, Pigling Bland and my favourite Samuel Whiskers, matched against both old b&w photos and contemporary colour ones. Excellent little booklet, and a wonderful hors d'ouevre for a visit to Hill Top, now an NT property.

5.0 out of 5 stars Charming 1 Oct 2011
By HannaLee - Published on
I picked this up at a thrift store. I have a full biography of Mrs. Potter, but this is just a short overview of her life with a multitude of pictures. At 32 pages, it's easy to sit and enjoy in an hour. I loved it. My children, who all enjoy her stories, poured over it. I love how it shows pictures of Hill Top and other locations, then shows those locations in the stories. I knew that she used her home and surroundings as inspiration, but did not know how closely some of the pictures are to reality. Gorgeous! It also shows some of her other paintings. She was such a talented woman.
