While living in the city of Zürich she began to write about life in the country. Her first book titled A Leaf on Vrony's Grave, was published in 1871 and the following year further stories for both adults and children appeared, among them the tale of Heidi that became an instant and enduring success. Heidi, the story of an orphan girl who lives with her grandfather in the Alps, is not only famous for its vivid portrayal of the landscape but also for its understanding of how children see life and their feelings. Her husband and her only child, a son named Bernard, both died in 1884. Alone, she devoted herself to charitable causes and wrote over fifty more stories before her death in 1901. She was interred in the family plot at the Sihlfeld-A Cemetery in Zürich, Switzerland. An icon in Switzerland, Johanna Spyri's portrait was placed on a postage stamp in 1951 and on a 20 CHF commemorative coin in 2001. In April 2010 it was announced that large parts of Heidi may be based on a story written by Hermann Adam von Kamp and published in 1830, called "Adelaide, das Mädchen vom Alpengebirge" .

Extractions: Johanna Spyri, a Swiss author who died in 1901, was the creator of stories, beginning in 1879, about a girl called Heimathlos, known in English as Heidi. Heidi, you understand, was a character in fiction. The stories were not biography, they were fantasy. They have delighted readers in many languages, and the stories have been made into several movies. I expect there have been musicals. Girls have been named after the little heroine. The genre is a kind of sentimental realism, telling of the ordinary trials and joys in the life of an orphan child in the Swiss Alps at the end of last century.

Extractions: Johanna Spyri (1827-1901) , Swiss author of the popular Heidi Heidi , an orphan living in a cottage in the Alps with her grandfather deals with many of the issues children and adults can relate to. He is overprotective, and she ends up spending much free time with Peter in the meadows. When she moves to Frankfurt, Germany to live with Klara, she has a difficult time adjusting to the confinement of the city and discipline of education. Much like Spyri experienced in real life, Heidi becomes homesick for the freedom and fresh air of the country. When she returns with Klara, there is jealousy and conflict intermingled with the individual pains of growing up. Heidi has sold millions of copies, inspired many movies, cartoons, television series, and is translated to over forty languages.
