Library Journal - Library JournalThis volume was gleaned from the memoirs of Anna Catharina Antes (1726-1816), a deaconness in the Morovian Church who left her native Pennsylvania for the wilds of North Carolina. The 1946 text received high praise, such as that in Book Week : ``Fries has built all the material into a narrative so rich in atmosphere and sustained in interest that it has much the same quality of a very good historical novel. Her work is extraordinarily deft and sensitive and possesses both warmth and integrity.'' The volume works as a history, a biography, and a religious title.
