The Forgotten Acadians … a story of discovery
$12.95 – $16.95
This manuscript is a culmination of years of effort to reveal a “lost chapter” in Canadian and Maritime history, a story that began with a Mi’kmaq and Basque seasonal presence on the NS Eastern Shore as early as the 16th Century, followed by a permanent settlement of Chezzetcook Acadian families in the latter part of the 18th.
Did you know Samuel de Champlain visited Tor Baie, Guysborough Co, NS in 1607 before sailing up the St. Lawrence to found Quebec City the following year? Discover the Acadian Awakening in Nova Scotia and its connections to the “quiet revolution” in Quebec, the first Acadian premier of New Brunswick, and on the federal scene, the emergence of the “Three Wise Men” who changed national perspectives on bilingualism and multiculturalism in Canada forever.
It is also hoped that this book will entice readers to visit these “forgotten shores” to uncover a wealth of information at the unique “Parc de Nos Ancêtres” Commemorative Park in Larry’s River, and “Place Savalette National Historic Site”, in Port Félix, Nova Scotia.
