Rock Crystal

By Adalbert Stifter

- +

A beautiful, enigmatic story by one of the greatest German-language novelists.

This seemingly simple fable of two children lost in a frozen landscape is eloquent in its innocence. A Christmas story set in a terrifying and beautiful world of snow and ice, Rock Crystal is a classic of German literature, loved by children and adults alike.
