The full title of this 2-volume set is Gideon's People: Being a Chronicle of an American Indian community in Colonial Connecticut and the Moravian Missionaries Who Served There. Gideon's People, published in 2009 and translated and edited by Corinna Dally-Starna and William A. Starna, tells the story of an American Indian community in the Housatonic Valley of northwestern Connecticut. It is based on three decades of German-language diaries and allied records kept by the Moravian missionaries who had joined the Indians at Schaghticoke. It is supplemented by colonial records and regional political, social, and religious histories and ethnographies. As such, it represents the only comprehensive, thoroughly contextualized description of a Native people in southern New England and adjacent eastern New York for the mid-eighteenth century.
