Yeah, the Acadians had a very peaceful history of cooperation with native populations in their area. To this day, the Micmacs and Acadians have a close cooperation in Nova Scotia, and when the Acadians fled to Louisiana, they blended right in.

And I see what you mean, oil companies as the invader. I didn't quite get your angle at first.

I've never heard of that book, but I may have to read it now. Every Acadian is an amateur genealogist and historian, but it's always good to learn more. THANK YOU for actually knowing who we are! Most people have no clue.

James Laxer is made of awesome. It took me just a few days to plow through The Border. I'm pretty sure I want to read every word the guy has ever written.

Acadian history is some of the most interesting stuff I've ever read. I've added a couple more books to my Wish List, just today. :D Rhode Island has its own francophone people, but they're not Acadians. They came from Québec to work the mills in Woonsocket. Also interesting stuff. [/history dork]

I'll definitely hunt down his books. :D

Yeah, the Acadians have a unique history. I'm just glad someone remembers us. ♥

Aww, lots of people do! Otherwise there wouldn't be so many books out there! :D

I'm going to Ottawa at the end of next month and I'll be sure to hit a Chapters. James Laxer is a Canadian author, so If you want anything, let me know!
