Brings together records documenting a little known diplomatic effort to establish peace along the war-torn Appalachian frontier during the spring, summer, and fall of 1760. Assembled here is a representative sample of council minutes, speeches, letters, journals, and other types of records documenting a frontier diplomatic mission of the period. These records reveal something of the range and diversity of documentary materials available to scholars. Individually, they document political maneuvers and details of everyday life, many of which are recorded nowhere else. Collectively, they provide keys to understand how Indians and colonists shaped a new diplomatic landscape along the Pennsylvania frontier. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
