Linda Lear on "Beatrix Potter"

April 20, 2008

Linda Lear is the author of "Beatrix Potter: A Life in Nature." She tells Jim Fleming that the creator of Peter Rabbit could have been a scientist, that she understood the power of merchandising, and that she ended up a wealthy farmer who donated the land that became the National Lake District Park in England. And we hear Meryl Streep read from "Peter Rabbit."
