William Penn's Own Account of the Lenni Lenape Or Delaware Indians
In 1683, ten months after his arrival in America, William Penn wrote this now-famous sketch of Lenni Lenape Society. An acute observer, he was interested in all facets of Indian culture, and his account ranges from descriptions of the Indians' daily lives through discussions of their religious and moral views. Penn interpreted their mode of living with understanding, sympathy and, on occasion, even wistful envy. This edition includes the texts of several early Indian treaties and related documents.
