"Detailed research and thoughtful insights make David Zeisberger: A Life among the Indians a valuable study of Indian-Colonist relations in eighteenth-century British North America. Judicious in approach and compassionate without being polemical or sentimental, Olmstead brings to life the story of this Moravian missionary to the Eastern Woodland Indians. This volume, in combination with the author's Blackcoats Among the Delaware, merits acceptance as the standard work about Zeisberger." Philip Weeks, author of Farewell, My Nation: The American Indians and the United States.
