This was a very enjoyable read. I love folk stories and this book provided me with six wonderful ones, all named after minerals and colorful stones found in the mountains. The titles of the separate story have a deeper meaning when you read the story attached to it. I love them all, but Rockcrystal is an exceptionally wonderful story for Christmas times. I'm not going to spoil anybody interest by telling the content, read it yourself, enjoy it and I'm sure you're as eager as I'm to buy your own This was a very enjoyable read.

The stories feel like folks tales and while there isn't much happening in them they still catch the reader and make them involved in the story. What matters in these stories is the nature. Each is named after a stone and they represent the mood of the story.
It takes place in beautiful Austrian landscapes and their description is absolutely perfect. In Kalkstein we have a landscape that doesn't have much in it, not A beautiful collection of 6 short stories by an Austrian author Adalbert Stiftler. In Kalkstein we have a landscape that doesn't have much in it, not many trees just a lot emptiness and limestone.
It gets well together with the main character who lives a very simple life but has a rich character. Bergkristal is one of the best stories. The purity and stillness of the snowy landscape where one can't see anything are felt through the whole story and makes one get into the mood of the children experiencing it.
Katzensilber is another one I loved the most. It seems to have most of action in the story and the warmth and brightness of the summer in the nature setting around the grandma's home is also very well felt. A nice collection with beautiful language and a strongly felt motive of nature and human's place in it.

Bunte Steine: Ein Festgeschenk
The collection is sourced from the remarkable library of Victor Amadeus, whose Castle Corvey collection was one of the most spectacular discoveries of the late s. The Corvey Collection comprises one of the most important collections of Romantic era writing in existence anywhere -- including fiction, short prose, dramatic works, poetry, and more -- with a focus on especially difficult-to-find works by lesser-known, historically neglected writers. The Corvey library was built during the last half of the 19th century by Victor and his wife Elise, both bibliophiles with varied interests. The collection thus contains everything from novels and short stories to belles lettres and more populist works, and includes many exceedingly rare works not available in any other collection from the period. These invaluable, sometimes previously unknown works are of particular interest to scholars and researchers.
