"This ed. ... provides the first complete and accurate English-language translation of an essential first-hand account of the lives and world of Dutch colonists and northeastern Native communities in the seventeenth century. Adriaen van Der Donck, a graduate of Leiden University in the 1640s, became the law enforcement officer for the Dutch patroonship of Rensselaerswijck, located along the upper Hudson River. His position enabled him to interact extensively with Dutch colonists and the local Algonquians and Iroquoians. An astute observer, detailed recorder, and accessible writer, Van der Donck was ideally situated to write about his experiences and the natural and cultural worlds around him. ... [It] was first published in 1655 and then expanded in 1656. An inaccurate and abbreviated English translation appeared in 1841 and was reprinted in 1968. This new volume features an accurate, polished translation by Diederik Willem Goedhuys and includes all the material from the original 1655 and 1656 editions."--Back cover.

worth your time

da MTBradley (Utenti WorldCat. Pubblicazioni 2010-10-13) Eccellente Link permanente

The volume includes an informative forward and preface. I find van der Donck reminiscent of James Adair (in his The history of the American Indians; see OCLC #470066445 at http://www.worldcat.org/oclc/470066445) in that he presents welcome detail on topics often neglected by past and present...
