What people are saying about this book: An important book in Acadian literature. Nicolas Steinbach, Radio-Canada (CBC) A remarkable book and a remarkable feat to have touched on the Acadian experience from just about every point of view. Zachary Richard, musician, Louisiana s French poet laureate and author of The History of the Acadians of Louisiana This book is a colossal work. Jimena Vergara, Radio-Canada (CBC) I am proud to be a part of this project, which provides an impressive collection of perspectives on the Acadian and Cajun experiences. I suspect that this will become a standard reference for years to come. Barry Jean Ancelet, PhD, the Willis Granger and Tom Debaillon U. L. Professorship in Francophone Studies, author of Cajun and Creole Music Makers and Second Line Rescue. In 1605, French colonists settled Acadie (today Nova Scotia, Canada) and for the next 150 years developed a strong and unique Acadian culture. In 1755, the British
2 conducted forced deportations of the Acadians, rendering thousands homeless, and for the next 60 years these exiles migrated to seaports along the Atlantic Ocean and the Gulf of Mexico, eventually settling in new lands. This tragic upheaval did not succeed in extinguishing the Acadians, but instead planted the seeds of many new Acadies, where today their fascinating culture still thrives. This book is a collection of 65 articles by 55 authors on the Acadians and Cajuns living today in the American states of Louisiana, Texas, and Maine; in the Canadian provinces of New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island, Newfoundland and Quebec; and in the French regions of Nantes, Poitou, Belle-Ile-en-Mer, and St- Pierre et Miquelon. The collection provides the readers with new insights on the past, present, and future of the Acadian descendants from all the Acadies of the world. The book was directed by Warren Perrin, lawyer, Acadian and environmental activist, and author; Mary Broussard Perrin, artist and author; and Phil Comeau, filmmaker and author, during several years of preparation. All profits from the book will be donated to 22 Acadian museums which are located in three countries. Prior to his death, Cajun artist George Rodrigue gave his permission to use his painting for use on the books cover. Two of the book directors are available to do interviews: Warren Perrin, (337) or (337) Mary Broussard Perrin, (337) Biographies of the three directors of the book: Warren A.
