In the beloved children’s classic “Heidi,” the climactic passage describes Heidi’s formerly disabled cousin, Clara, after an extended visit to Heidi’s high mountain home, running to meet her father while Heidi dances around her, crowing, “I knew the mountains would make you well! I knew they would make you well!”

Here in the Wenatchee Valley, a real life version of Heidi’s mountain paradise, we are surrounded by stunning evidence of the profound truth of Heidi’s cheer. Among us live giants whose everyday lives take to its utmost extreme the concept of making lemonade from the lemons life deals.
