Transcription, translation, and preparation for publication of a Moravian mission diary; and the creation of related website.

The project consists of the transcription, translation, annotation and publication of the vitally important manuscripts that constitute the Moravian mission diary of the strategic Native American "capital" of the 18th century woodlands Indians at Shamokin, Pennsylvania. The edition will also include a substantial critical introduction, which discusses the context and significance of the diary. This collection of manuscripts (written primarily in German with a few sections in English) was written by 10 different missionaries, including the young David Zeisberger, perhaps the most famous observer of Native American life before John Heckewelder (the source for Fenimore Cooper's Leatherstocking Tales).
