A selection of the best stories from American/Swiss humorist Eugene V. Epstein's two books 'Once Upon an Alp' and 'Lend Me Your Alphorn'. His wry humour, keen observations and infectious sense of fun in these books made him famous and set off a lot of smiles throughout the country for several decades. Now these classic stories are available again. He explains how he learned to pronounce Chuchichaeschtli properly and about singing and jassing along with the Swiss, what you must know about the Foehn, skiing and joining Swiss clubs. Move up in society with a 'Jet Pet' or join him 'Climbing the Geiger' or escaping drafts in restaurants. Enjoy how he tried to lose his bicycle, what he learned about trout fishing, fondue and Grueezi.
