More than a hundred years ago, amid the tumult and clamor of the Franco-Prussian War, little Heidi was born into the world of literature. The author, Johanna Spyri, had no way of knowing that this innocent, sweet little Swiss child of her imagination, was to find her way into the hearts of generations of children around the world. The book Heidi went on to become a classic.
Mrs. Spyri wrote beneath the title of her unforgettable book, "A Story for Children and for Such as Love Children." And so it is.
Anyone who loves the beauties of nature, the refreshing innocence of children, or who identifies with the struggles of life, will find themselves drawn to this dear child and the other memorable character--Heidi's grandfather, Peter and his blind grandmother, kindhearted Grandmamma Sesseman and her granddaughter Klara.
For the magnificent setting of her story--the slopes and meadows of the rugged but beautiful Swiss Alps--Johanna Spyri drew upon her own childhood and background. So realistic are her portrayals that the reader is almost able to smell the Alpine air, hear the whispers of the old firs, and catch the tinkling of the goats' bells.
In this book you will see the real meaning of love, truthfulness, and loyalty demonstrated. Step up into a beautiful new dimension and quality of life as you turn the pages--an inspiring book with enduring universal appeal.
