Heartwarming tale of a cheerful orphan sent to live with her hermit-like grandfather high in the Swiss Alps. There, she transforms the lives of Peter, a goatherd; Peter's blind grandmother; Klara, a well-to-do but sickly girl; and even the old Alm-Uncle, Heidi's surly grandfather. A delightful story "for children and those who love children." Reprinted from the 1881 edition. (271pp. Dover Pub., 2000.)
