In this Book

summary
This work consists of a translated and annotated edition of an account book of the trade between a colonist of Dutch origins and approximately two hundred Munsee Indians in Ulster County, NY, from 1712 to 1732. The manuscript, originally written in Dutch, represents the only extant overview of the nature and characteristics of intercultural economic exchanges between colonists and natives along the mid-Hudson Valley. The bulk of the recorded accounts show entries from between 1717 and 1729, and around one hundred indigenous customers appear with their names listed. The editors have also included a detailed introduction and an appendix of Munsee profiles.
