EVANGELINE and the ACADIANS
By Robert Tallant
"Acadia" and those that referred to it as "Nova Scotia" slowly stopped intermingling. Acadian parents would punish any child caught speaking English, and these unyielding people kept dreaming of a new home that offered hope, the hope this land once promised. Robert Tallant writes with a historically accurate and sympathetic voice. He speaks about the tragic expulsion of the Acadians and focuses on the circumstances that led up to the Acadians' forced exodus to many French-speaking places, including a haven some Acadians or Cajuns found called Louisiana. Paperback; 183 pages.
