The Chalet School

Elinor M. Brent-Dyer's series of books chronicling three decades in the life of a girls' boarding-school -- from its inception in the Austrian Tyrol in 1930, through the war and postwar years in England and Wales, to its (seemingly) final home in Switzerland -- remains insanely popular, even in a world that would be scarcely recognizable to any of Brent-Dyer's characters, and even despite the fact that most of the books are out of print.
