Hear Heidi if you have ever longed to see the Swiss mountain slopes. This story transports the listener from the fine air and freedom of the mountaintop to the confines of Frankfurt, back to the peaks again, bounding in flowered fields with goats at your heels and sky utterly surrounding you. We meet Heidi when she is 5, led up the mountain by her aunt who has raised the orphan but must leave now for a position in Frankfurt. In a mountain cottage overlooking the valley is Heidis grandfather, and there with him the girls sweet, free nature expands with the vista. The authors voice is straightforward, and so is our readers, with the childs wonder, devotion, and sometimes humorous good intentions. When Heidi is taken from the mountains and nearly doesnt make it back again, the most humorous as well as most heart-wringing scenes occur. All she learns during her absence from the mountain she brings back as seeds that will grow to benefit everyone around her. (Summary by Anita) Written in 1880, Heidi is a novel for children, which remains one of the most well-known pieces of Swiss literature. A young girl is taken to live with her grandfather in a remote alpine village. He has been estranged from the village for years, but his granddaughter penetrates his crusty exterior and transforms his isolated life into one of joy. She also befriends the young goat-herder, Peter.
