This latest volume in the series, Records of the Moravians Among the Cherokees, continues the use of original diaries, minutes, and correspondence in the Moravian Archives in Winston-Salem, NC, to provide a first-hand account of daily life among the Cherokees from the perspectives of missionaries living amongst them in the first half of the nineteenth century. Priced at $40.00 per volume plus tax.
