Alongside his work with the Camphill movement, Karl König was a prolific writer of stories, poems and meditative verses. This book contains a selection of his creative work, including verses for specific occasions, twenty-four poems, four stories for children and ten other short stories, including 'Also a Christmas Story'.

An extensive introductory essay explores the cultural environments in which König was writing – including Vienna in the early twentieth century, and the challenging times leading up to the Second World War in Europe – and discusses the creative development of his literary work.
