In this beautifully illustrated book, Adalbert Stifter (1805–1868) leads us into the unspoilt nature of the mountains. The title Rock Crystal denotes the majestic world of the craggy perpetual ice in which two children lose their way on Christmas Eve. The story of this cold wintry night is narrated here, the story of two villages, a story of reservedness and concern, of estrangement and reconciliation. Stifter describes this world with a gentle touch and thus creates a timeless Christmas narration casting its spell on all generations anew.
