Though this is very similar to the translation by Helen Dole, the translator is not stated. It says "unabridged" but if based on Dole's version, there are some editorial cuts. It includes seven attractive line-drawing illustrations.
Heidi is five when she is sent to live with her grandfather in his lonely hut high in the Alps. She quickly grows to love her carefree life with him in the mountain air, and the old man comes to love her too. They are both unhappy when Heidi is sent away again, to a family in town, but she soon manages to get home to the Alps—and to share her happiness with her new friends.
