Records of the Moravians Among the Cherokees, vol. 1-10

Edited by Richard W. Starbuck, 2017-2020.
Edited by Archivist C. Daniel Crews and Richard W. Starbuck, 2010-2015.
$40.00 + tax, per volume; $300.00 + tax + $15 S&H per set (reduced rate for complete sets)

Here is perhaps the earliest, longest-running account of daily life in the Cherokee Nation. This book series spans from 1801—the beginning of the Moravian mission in today’s Georgia— through the Trail of Tears in 1838, and up until the Civil War and beyond. In diaries, letters, and reports, Moravian missionaries noted the events, momentous as well as routine, that affected them and the Cherokee people. The Moravian Archives in Winston-Salem, North Carolina is compiling these volumes with the principal support of the Cherokee Nation in Tahlequah, Oklahoma, and additional funding by the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians, Cherokee Moravian Historical Association, Wachovia Historical Society, and Friends of Moravian Archives.

Wachovia: A Poetry Collection

by Ed Lyons
40 pages $10.00 + tax
Published 2019

A touching collection of verse describing a wide variety of aspects of the Moravian experience, with new images for Moravian traditions and mission work, and new words for the joys of fellowship and struggles of faith. Pennsylvania-born Lyons moved to Florida at the age of 11, and had composed his first important poem at the age of 17. He attended St. Petersburg College, where he met Doug Stuber, then the University of Florida, and Florida State University, eventually taking a Master’s of Science in Instructional Systems, a discipline which brought him into contact with friends from all over Latin America. After leaving academia, Ed spent twenty years in Roanoke, VA, away from most poetry, working on interests in guitar and music. When he moved to Winston-Salem in 2011 after an illness, he transferred his church membership to Trinity Moravian, where he was asked to join the choir and write hymns. In 2014, Ed rejoined his old friend Doug Stuber to help establish the anthology Poems from the Heron Clan, which has become a beloved forum for Raleigh/Durham/ Chapel Hill poets. The new interest in Ed’s poetry work encouraged him to write “Wachovia.” A generous portion of the proceeds of this work go to the Archives.
