"Heidi" takes us on a journey to the eventful childhood of a good-hearted girl from the Swiss Alps. A warm and loving story, full of touching moments, it reaches children and adults alike. It was written in 1880 and published in two parts:1. Heidi's years of learning and travel.2. Heidi makes use of what she has learned.This English translation from 1915 has "an especial flavor, that very quality of delight in mountain scenes, in mountain people and in child life generally, which is one of the chief merits of the German original. The phrasing has also been carefully adapted to the purpose of reading aloud" (from the book's introduction). And thus, in this dramatic reading, Librivox volunteers bring this classic story to life with their voices.
