Publisher's Summary

First published in 1881, the subtitle of the book reads "It was written as a book "for children and those who love children." Heidi, as a 5-year-old orphan, has been handed off by her young aunt, Dete, to live with her grandfather in the Swiss Alps. The story follows her life as she falls in love with her grandfather and he with her and the life of goat-herding that they share.

Grandfather refuses to allow her to attend school in the small village below and quarrels ensue. Her young aunt returns to remove her from grandfather to live as a hired lady's companion to wealthy Clara, a wheelchair bound child, in Frankfurt. She is loved by Clara, but not by the other's within Clara's home where she is considered ill-mannered. Heidi becomes severely homesick and the wealthy family's doctor recommends her return to the mountains. Clara misses Heidi and comes to visit.
