Description


Conrad Weiser (1696-1760) was a Pennsylvania German pioneer, interpreter, and representative of the colonies to the Indians. Weiser was one of the most important figures in North America during the colonial period. Without Weiser's knowledge of native languages and customs and his deft handling of negotiations on behalf of the Penns and other royal governors, the long peace between the proprietors and the natives would have been short-lived. This second revised edition of Arthur Graeff's 1945 biography contains copious footnotes, numerous pictures, and a thorough index missing from the first edition.
