  INTRODUCTION

  There is here presented to the reader a careful translation of "Heidi,"one of the most popular works of the great Swiss authoress, MadamJohanna Spyri. As particulars of her career are not easily gathered, wemay here state that Johanna Heusser was born at Zurich, June 12, 1827.She wrote nothing in her youth. She was happily married to the AdvocateSpyri. Later, the Franco-Prussian war evoked from her a book devisedfor a charitable purpose, and the success of this volume revealed herfuture. She died at her home in Zurich in 1891. Her fame has spread toall countries, and her many books have delighted not only the childrenfor whom they were so artfully written, but they have become favoriteswith lovers of children as well.

  As to "Heidi," itself, wherever mountains are seen or read about, thesimple account of the early life of the Swiss child, amid the beautiesof her passionately-loved home, will be a favorite book for youngerreaders and those who seek their good.

  Johanna Spyri lived amidst the scenes she so gracefully described. Inall her stories she shows an underlying desire to preserve her youngreaders alike from misunderstanding and the mistaken kindness thatfrequently hinders the happiness and natural development of their livesand characters.

  Among her many works are the following: "Arthur and His Squirrel,""On Sunday," "From the Swiss Mountains," "A Scion of the House ofLesa," "The Great and the Small All May Aid," "From Near and Far,""Cornelius," "Lost but Not Forgotten," "Gritli's Children," 2 volumes,"Without a Country," "What Shall Then Become of Her?," "Sina," "FromOur Own Country," "Ten Stories," 2 volumes, "In Leuchtensa," "UncleTitus," "A Golden Saying," "The Castle Wildenstein," "What ReallyHappened to Her," "In the Valley of the Tilonne," "The Hauffer Mill."
