Publisher Description

Heidi (1881) by Johanna Spyri is a charming novel about an orphaned girl. She was initially raised by her aunt Detie in Maienfeld, Switzerland after the early deaths of her parents, Tobias and Adelheid (Detie’s sister and brother-in-law). Detie brings 6-year-old Heidi to her paternal grandfather’s house, up the mountain from Dörfli. He has been at odds with the villagers and embittered against God for years and lives in seclusion on the alm. This has earned him the nickname Alm-Uncle. He briefly resents Heidi’s arrival, but the girl’s evident intelligence and cheerful yet unaffected demeanor soon earn his genuine, if reserved, affection. Heidi enthusiastically befriends her new neighbors, young Peter the goatherd, his mother, Bridget, and his blind maternal grandmother, who is “Grannie” to everyone. With each season that passes, the mountaintop inhabitants grow more attached to Heidi…
