Thousands of pages of diaries and hundreds of letters serve as David Zeisberger's testament to sixty-three years as a Moravian missionary among North American Indians. This unrivaled record of Indian culture and colonial life provides firsthand evidence of the eighteenth-century struggle between the American Indians and their British and American adversaries. Readers of Blackcoats among the Delaware will find new and interesting historical data taken from recently discovered correspondence and previously untranslated diaries, as well as a fascinating analysis of Zeisberger's unique approach to Christian philosophy vis-a-vis native Indian religion and culture. The final section of the book is devoted to discussing the often tragic lives of the forty Indians buried with Zeisberger in the Goshen cemetery. - Back cover.
