Pier Luigi is a fifteen-year-old boy. Since he was born, he has spent every summer in an isolated pasture high in the mountains in the company of cows, goats and nature. The mountains in the Segusine area of the Western Alps have always been the backdrop to his summer. Pier is not like other boys of the same age: he was born and raised a farmer, and he loves his job, his animals and his mountains. He would not change his simple, yet difficult, life with anything in the world. The mountains will survive because of people like him, but such people are becoming increasingly rare.
