The first work devoted exclusively to the Acadians of Nova Scotia, this book presents a thorough study of Acadian history from the earliest days of French settlement to present-day Acadian communities. Authors Sally Ross and Alphonse Deveau examine the history of the Expulsion that began in 1755, and trace the return of the Acadians and their resettlement in seven areas of the province. The authors also discuss the choices and challenges faced by Acadians today: linguistic assimilation and preservation of a distinct culture against pressures from the mainstream culture. 1992 paperback, 214 pages.
