This book includes the entire diary and reminiscences of Arvilla Powers Smith and the portion of George Smith’s voluminous memoranda and diaries pertaining to the Old Wing Mission (1838-1849) located in the Black Lake watershed of Lake Michigan. The Smiths came to Old Wing with a goal to spread the Christian gospel to Ottawas and Potawatomis. The Smith diaries reflect the sustaining role their Christian faith played and the new communities forming as Euro-Americans and Indians met and mediated their cultural differences.
