• Rescue Dog of the High Pass

    Available: Epub 12 Downloads
    Franz Halle felt he was worthless because he could not manage book learning, but his schoolmaster and the village pastor knew that the boy had a priceless knowledge all his own. The kindly priest secured work for Franz at near-by St. Bernard Hospice, helping a gentle giant of a man who made it possible for him to keep his beloved Alpine mastiff, Caesar, although the huge animal refused to earn his keep, even by turning the spit. When the scarcity of food forced Caesar's reluctant banishment, Franz—who had joined the monks in their daily patrol of the dangerous passes—proved that where even he, with all his rare knowledge of the ways of the blizzards, might fail, a dog could detect a man buried under an avalanche! So Franz and his brave helper initiated the rescue work of the St. Bernard dogs that was to become famous throughout the world.

    This book is an introduction to German for English–speaking children. It was aimed at well–to–do American children of the late 19th century. Even though nearly the entire book is in German, an English speaker can read the book cover–to–cover without any other reference work. This is a remarkable feat of authorship.

    These stories were born of Sandburg's desire for "American fairy tales" to match an American childhood. Feeling that European stories involving royalty and knights were inappropriate, he set his stories in a fictionalized American Midwest called "Rootabaga country" and fill the land with farms, trains, and corn fairies.
