Summary
This is the diary of James McCullogh, a Scot-Irish immigrant farmer who settled on the Pennsylvania frontier in the mid-1700s...In its 116 pages, he jots notations from his daily life, from planting to business accounts to the secret places where he hid his tools during bloody Indian raids. The book records life-altering events such as the loss of his brother John and the kidnapping of his two small sons -the younger of which he never saw again- at the hands of Indians. He includes Bible verses and writes some entries in code, somewhat curiously, since he also provides the key. [book jacket]
In this annotated volume, there are facsimiles of the diary's pages, along with a transcription for clarity...and useful commentary providing context and background.
