The book is a fascinating account from the diaries and journals of the missionary travels of Rev. Paul Henkel and, his wife, Elizabeth Negeley Henkel. They traveled by horse and buggy through the mid-Atlantic states in the late 1700’s and early 1800’s. Their travels took them on trips to North Carolina where Paul was born, to Pendleton County, VA (now WVA) where he lived in his youth, and to Ohio, Tennessee, and Missouri where they helped to spread God’s word. Paul and Elizabeth’s home was in New Market, VA. New Market was the center of their ministry and home to The Henkel Press which for over 150 years printed materials for many the Lutheran Churches across the country.
