Synopses & Reviews
Simply put, this is the best account of early life in Acadia. In 1605 French colonizers settled in Port Royal, the first settlement in the New World. This book presents an evocative account of the lives of the settlers. It is a story of bravery and intrigue, of religious passion and commercial fervor, of dreams and folly.
This is the definitive account of early life in Acadia. The reprint of this outstanding book (originally published by the University of Toronto Press in 1986) coincides with the resurgence of interest in Acadian culture.
