a story of the Swiss Alps
Series Title: The stories all children love
Author: Johanna Spyri
A children’s story from Switzerland. The story begins: The June sun was streaming down upon the green slope above the village of Leuk, and the fresh green grass which covered the heights as far as the eye could see filled the air with fragrance. At an isolated house along the path which led to the baths of Leuk, two women were lost in lively talk; indeed it seemed as if they could never come to the end of everything they had to say to each other.
