Beatrix Potter's Americans: Selected Letters
Jane Crowell Morse

Sale! Was $35.00, now $12.98!

"Most welcome!" Beatrix Potter Heelis wrote to an American children's book editor in 1930. "I always tell nice Americans to send other nice Americans along. Perhaps 'understanding Americans' would be a better adjective than 'nice.' You come because you understand the books...not from any impertinent curiosity."

After her marriage to William Heelis in 1913, Beatrix Potter lived in the Lake District where she devoted herself to raising sheep and helping to conserve land for the National Trust. She welcomed visits from Americans and kept the friendships alive with warm personal letters, even in the difficult years of World War II. The letters covered a wide range of subjects: art, children's books, country life, conservation, place names and language, sheep, old furniture, human behavior, and international politics. This is her own record of her 'purposeful life of achievement' between 1921 and 1943.

Includes twenty full-color illustrations, one pencil drawing, and one pen-and-ink sketch by Beatrix Potter; Index; Appendix: 'Roots' of the Peter Rabbit Tales.
