About the Book

This book traces the footprints of the Lenape-Delaware Indians across the continent and centers on a culture which occupied a four – state region of the Northeast. The initial written documentation describing their way of life was supplied by eleven seventeenth century observers from four nationalities. In the next century, religious missionaries recorded their changing society as it faced the tide of immigration flooding into their homelands. Without their written information, this book could never have been completed.
