MONDAY, January 3: Part I - Heidi

Heidi (the Girl from the Alps) is a two-volume novel written by Johanna Spyri, which was published in 1879 / 1880, became a world-wide success story already towards the end of the 19th century and children still love it today - as a book, as a radio play and as a movie. 

Heidi is by far the most popular piece of Swiss literature ever written and has been translated from German into 50 languages, been filmed more than a dozen times, and more than 50 million copies of Heidi books have been sold world-wide (Switzerland's population is only 7 million ...). 

Caledonia begins this adventure tonight, presented in Voice.
