Product Description

About the Author

Georges Arsenault is a prominent Acadian historian and folklorist who has been writing about the Acadians of Prince Edward Island since the early 1980s. His landmark book, Les Acadiens de l’Île, 1720-1980, won both the Champlain and France-Acadie prizes. In 2002, he wrote Acadian Legends, Folktales and Songs from Prince Edward Island, and with the publication of Acadian Christmas Traditions in 2007, he expanded his research to include Acadian traditions throughout Eastern Canada. The original French version of this book, La Mi-Carême en Acadie (published by La Grand Marée), received the 2008 Prince Edward Island Book Award. Sally Ross is an historian and translator from Nova Scotia. She has translated three other books by Georges Arsenault: The Island Acadians, 1720-1980 (Ragweed Press, 1989); Acadian Legends, Folktales, and Songs from Prince Edward Island (Acorn Press, 2002); and Acadian Christmas Traditions (Acorn Press, 2007).

Format: Paperback
George Arsenault's interviews and translations of the songs of this region of PEI are a wonderful tribute to the Island Acadians. My mother, being from Nail Pond, PEI was able to identify many of the folks featured in this book. As a second generation Canadian from Quebec with a last name far removed from those in the book, I still swelled with pride knowing that this is indeed a part of my cultural identity and embrace my Acadian heritage with open arms. Vive L'acadie et les Acadiennes....
