Heidi

by Johanna Spyri


Description:  The well-loved tale of Heidi, the young Swiss mountain girl, whose joyous nature transforms the lives of all those around her. Brought as an orphan to the Alm Uncle's rude Alpine hut, Heidi soon softens his heart and comes to delight in gamboling on the mountainside with Peter and his goats. But her aunt procures for her a position as companion to the ailing Clara, so she reluctantly leaves behind her primitive life and sweeps, like a breath of fresh air, into the sophisticated city home. Her love for the Alpine pastures is so strong, however, that she grows ill herself for want of the bracing mountain air. On her return home, she brings joy to the Alm Uncle and the grandmother and quickly regains her vitality.
