Behind the Chalet School
by Helen McClelland

1996 Bettany Press Little was known about Elinor M. Brent-Dyer until after her death, when Helen McClelland originally began her researches. Since the first edition of her biography was published in 1981, new information has made it possible to give a much fuller picture of Brent-Dyer's early life and to fill in some of the gaps that remained in her story.
Many sections of the book have been not only revised but expanded; more details are included about Chalet School locations; and a whole new chapter covers Elinor M. Brent-Dyer's birth centenary celebrations and the amazing growth of the Chalet School legend during the 1990s. One or two old questions have been answered and some "missing" people have been found, including Elinor's vanished half-brother. The book also includes several new illustrations and an appendix on the sometimes problematic chronology of the Chalet School series. - 1996 Bettany Press
