Description

Fully illustrated. Heidi is a novel about the events in the life of a young girl in her grandfather's care, in the Swiss Alps. Heidi is an orphaned girl initially raised by her aunt Dete in Maienfeld, Switzerland after the early deaths of her parents, Tobias and Adelheid. Dete brings 6-year-old Heidi to her paternal grandfather's house, up the mountain from Dörfli, where he lives in seclusion. He briefly resents Heidi's arrival, but the girl's evident intelligence and cheerful demeanor soon earn his genuine affection. Heidi enthusiastically befriends her new neighbors, young Peter the goatherd, his mother, Bridgget, and his blind maternal grandmother. With each season that passes, the mountaintop inhabitants grow more attached to the young girl. Heidi is one of the best-selling books ever written and is among the best-known works of Swiss literature.

This book has 169 pages in the PDF version, and was originally published in 1919.
