This book delves into the fate the Acadians -- French-speaking Catholics -- who were forcefully expelled from the Bay of Fundy area in the 1750s by New England troops. Thousands of Acadians were scattered all over the British colonies, while thousands more fled into the woods as refugees. Their communities were torched and their lands stolen; this story of ethnic cleansing in early America provides a story with special poignancy in our own time. (paperback. 562 pages, W.W. Norton)
