About this Item

568 pages. Hardcover with dustjacket. New book. NATIVE AMERICANS. The ominous subtitle, March to Removal, opens a new series of Records of the Moravians Among the Cherokees that will take us up to 1838 and the tragic Trail of Tears. Volume 6 covers the years 1821-1824. Despite the loss of teacher Anna Rosina Gambold, the Moravians open a second mission station near Oochgeelogy Creek, thirty miles south of Springplace, their first station. Meanwhile, confident of its future, the Cherokee Nation sets about building a civilization of its own with a national capital, legislature, code of laws, and diplomatic negotiations with Washington. Now, all the Cherokee Nation needs is a syllabary to write its own languageÑa goal that will be achieved during the time period covered in volume 7 of Records of the Moravians Among the Cherokees. Records of the Moravians Among the Cherokees uses original diaries, minutes, reports, and correspondence in the Moravian Archives in North Carolina to provide a firsthand account of daily life among the Cherokee throughout the nineteenth century. Though written by missionaries from their perspective, these records provide much insight into Cherokee culture, society, customs, and personalities. C. Daniel Crews, an ordained minister and Archivist of the Moravian Church, Southern Province, is the author of several publications on Moravian history and theology. Richard W. Starbuck, a former writer and editor for the Winston-Salem Journal-Sentinel newspapers, serves as editor for the Moravian Archives. He is coauthor of With Courage for the Future: The Story of the Moravian Church, Southern Province. (Key Words: Moravians, Cherokee Indians, American Indians, Native Americans, C. Daniel Crews, Richard W. Starbuck). Bookseller Inventory # 86290X1
