As Swiss as Heidi?

I picked up Heidi a few years ago on a lark and was surprised at how great it was. The descriptions of transhumance, dairy herding, and life in the Swiss Alps were so rich and detailed -- the different ways they ate cheese! the way the grandfather stirred butter with his bare arms and went around on a sled! Now I'm on the verge of making my first trip to Switzerland and I want to read other books that give me the same feeling. For kids, adults ... fiction, nonfiction ... anything goes. I'd love to read more about Alpine transhumance but probably can't handle anything too heavy while traveling.
