Alois Carigiet «Schellen-Ursli»

Rhyme of a young village boy who makes a somewhat heroic effort to retrieve a big cowbell from the Alm (in snow) to carry in the cowbell parade-festival (Glockenumzugsfest). The festival symbolizes driving away winter. This entertaining little story, with beautiful art work characteristic of Unterengadin, may give the reader a sense of how farm kids in the Alps could be made to feel inadequate by their colleagues.
