This charming orphan shares her grandfather's frugal Alpine life and roams the mountainside with Peter, a young goatherd. When she moves to Frankfurt as companion to Clara, a crippled child in a rich family, Heidi sickens as if confined.
Released to the mountains, she heals not only herself but Clara, for she and Peter teach her to walk.
"A classic of international children's literature, and with good reason!" (B-O-T Editorial Review Board)
