Day after day there were the same cloudless sky and the brilliant sun; the flowers opened wide their fragrant blossoms, and everywhere the eye was greeted with a glow of color; and when evening came the crimson light fell on mountain peaks and on the great snowfield, till at last the sun sank in a sea of golden flame. Heidi is only five when she is taken to live high in the Alps with her unusual grandfather. Despite his gruff ways, Heidi grows to love Grandfather and their simple life together in the beautiful mountains. Her happiness is shattered when she is sent to live in a strange city, but she soon finds her way back home. Discover one of the most charming heroines of all time in Johanna Spyri's classic novel.
