Into the American Woods: Negotiators on the Pennsylvania Frontier

James H. Merrell

Publisher: W. W. Norton & CompanyFormat: Paperback

This work is an account of the “go-betweens”, the Europeans and Indians who moved between cultures on the Pennsylvania frontier from the Quaker colony's founding in the 1670s and the 1750s. Merrell shows how the go-betweens survived in the woods, dealing with problems of food, travel, lodging and safety, and how they sought to bridge the vast cultural gaps between the Europeans and the Indians. The futility of their efforts to maintain the peace became clear in the sickening plummet into war after 1750.
