Summary
"John Heckewelder was one of the most active and observant American travellers in the eighteenth century. His extensive journeys through our eastern woods in the service of the Moravian Church and, at times, of the government of the United States, have been preserved for us in a number of superb travel journals. Hitherto these either have lain unseen in manuscript collections or, if published, have appeared disconnectedly, so that few readers have suspected how engrossing they are and how illuminative of our early history when read as a continuous narrative."

Summary
"In the 1820's, when the flow of immigration was still small, two Swiss immigrant families wrote accounts of what seemed to them to be the most decisive experiences of their lives. These particular accounts relate to a period in the history of American immigration that is less well known than the more spectacular colonial and post- Civil War movements. They are particularly vivid and insightful personal documents affording valuable perspectives of the integration of the 'Old Immigration' of ante-bellum days." [from the introduction]
