Into the American Woods by Merrell, James H.
Into the American Woods: Negotiators on the Pennsylvania Frontier
by Merrell, James H.
 
This is an account of the "go-betweens," the Europeans & Indians who moved between cultures on the Pennsylvania frontier in efforts to maintain the peace. It is also a reflection on the meanings of wilderness to the colonists & natives of the New World. From the Quaker colony's founding the 1680s into the 1750s, this shows us how the go-betweens survived in the woods, dealing with problems of food, travel, lodging, & safety, & how they sought to bridge the vast cultural gaps between the Europeans & the Indians.
