Early Modern Commoner Narratives in English Translation

World Historian Colleagues, 

I have found the use of "commoner" narratives a useful tool for the teaching the social history of early modern Europe and, to some extent, in World History. The examples I am most familiar with are: Gluckel of Hameln's Memoirs, Jacques-Louis Menetra's Journal of My Life, and Olaudah Equiano's Interesting Narrative.

Are there examples of other book-length narratives of this sort from from outside Europe and North America available in English translation?
