"A little girl with glowing cheeks and blowing hair came running through the wood. Her eyes sparkled with delight, while she was being driven along by the wind, or had to fight her way against it. From her arm was dangling a hat, which, as she raced along, seemed anxious to free itself from the fluttering ribbons in order to fly away."
"Cornelli, the heroine, suffers temporarily from the unjust suspicion of her elders, a misfortune which, it is to be feared. still occurs frequently in the case of sensitive children." -from the introduction by Charles Wharton Stork, A.M., Ph.D., from the Elisabeth P. Stork translation.
Sometimes titled "Cornelli: her childhood", sometimes subtitled "a story of the Swiss Alps".
