Beatrix Potter's Scotland gives insight into the life of one of the best-loved writers in Britain. Based around Potter's own journal, the book goes into detail about her upbringing and influences. She was largely brought up by nannies and governesses and even as a young child, she was perceived as highly imaginative and extremely intelligent, with a talent for drawing and a keen interest in science. The book details how Potter fell in love with the Perthshire countryside where she spent many summers, and how this helped her to create the characters Mrs Tiggy-Winkle and Mr Jeremy Fisher among others. The book also highlights how Walter Scott was an inspiration and was hugely admired by Potter from a young age. From the writer who brought you The Tale O Peter Kinnen, we learn about the creative literary genius that was Beatrix Potter.
