Format: Paperback
The Acadians are North Americans of French descent who have been in the Western Hemisphere for nearly 400 years. During that time they have remained a relatively homogeneous group. The early history of the Acadians has been previously well-documented. Dr. Brasseaux, a history scholar-teacher, has been heard telling students to investigate their roots in their studies. In this well researched and written volume, he has done just that himself. He relates in easily readable form the settling of Acadian South Louisiana. He is fortunate to have a large collection of Spanish Colonial documents literally at his fingertips to assist in his research. His book is a "must read" for anyone who wants the real picture of the beginnings of Acadiana.

This book takes you through the history of the Acadian people to their new home in Louisana. It gives the reader a sense of what made the Acadian-Cajun people the way they are today. I recomend it for any one interested in Acadian history or Louisiana history.

I started reading about the plight of the Acadian exiles when I found that I had about 8 lines of descent
within the Acadian settlers in Louisiana. I found this book to be a thorough introduction to the
hardships endured by these fiercely independent folk, and their "deliverance" in Louisiana. Although it
wasn't all milk and honey and roses once they got to Louisiana territory, it was a place to rebuild, recover,
and reconnect with family that they hadn't seen in 10-20 years. Although there are no family trees in the
text, if one knows who their Acadian forebears are, one can get glimpses into their day-to-day lives,
including where they settled originally, where they subsequently moved to, some birth/death/marriage
information, and most fascinatingly, who sued who and who got in trouble with the authorities. If
nothing else, the bibliography is worth the purchase price! I never expect to be able to spend the
endless hours it would take to pore over the old documents in the libraries, but there are a few gems
that I can get my hands on some day, and Carl Brasseaux has my gratitude for showing them to me!

This book tells the story of Acadians as they made their way into Louisiana. I would recommend this book to anyone who would like to educate themselves or others on this subject.
