The Little Man

The Little Man had discovered the blue stone up in the mountains, near the Rose Garden. He marched back and forth from the place to the valley, taking as much of the blue stone with him on each trip as he could.
 
 
 
 
But he didn't keep the stone for himself. Rather, he sold the pieces to a dyer in Bozen (Bolzano) who said that it was the most-beautiful blue that he had ever seen. The dyer gave him as much money as the Little Man wanted. Thus, the Little Man could live well – but no one ever found out where he had gotten the blue stone.
