In 1937, movie audiences in the midst of the Great Depression thrilled to Shirley Temple’s version of Heidi, the classic tale of a young orphan who is trying to find her way back to her beloved grandfather high in the Swiss Alps. Listeners who remember that film - in which the California mountains stand in for the Alps - will be delighted to hear Frances Cassidy’s sweet performance of Johanna Spyri’s beautifully written account of that magical land and that heart-warming saga of intergenerational devotion. Heidi is one of the best-selling - and best loved - children’s stories of all time.
