The harsh experience awaiting many of the hopeful Germans who emigrated to Pennsylvania in the eighteenth century, under indentures which separated families and deprived individuals of their liberty for years, is recorded as a warning by one of the sufferers. Gottlieb Mittelberger writes vividly of hardships and of lighter moments in Pennsylvania, revealing ingenuous humor and shrewd common sense. The new translation preserves the flavor of the German original.
