Thousands of pages of diaries and hundreds of letters serve as David Zeisberger’s testament to 63 years as a Moravian missionary among North American Indians.  This unrivaled record of Indian culture and colonial life provides firsthand evidence of the 18th-century struggle between the American Indians and their British and American adversaries.
