This is a first-person Chautauqua-style interpretation of Beatrix Potter and her multiple accomplishments. Potter, over various life stages, describes herself as a writer, artist, scientist, and a philanthropist. She dramatizes her role as a woman who impacted the 'domestic landscape' of children's books and rural England.
