About the Author:

Always intrigued by how the lives of artists and writers have been influenced by the natural world, Linda Lear discovered quite by accident that Beatrix Potter had passions and interests way beyond those of her legendary series of little books for children. A professor of environmental history and the author of the prize-winning biography, Rachel Carson: Witness of Nature, Lear is an enthusiastic horticulturalist and collector of botanical art.
