Product description

From the Back Cover

Grand-Pré is a powerful place name, not just in Canada but the world over. The events that unfolded in this Acadian village during the late summer and fall of 1755 loom large in the history of North America. This well-illustrated book examines the history of Grand-Pré—the most cherished of all Acadian settlements—from the 1680s to 1755. Authors John Johnston and Wayne Kerr bring the thriving village to life, and put in perspective the defining episode in its history, and in the history of the Acadian people as a whole: the tragic Deportation that was carried out across the entire Maritime region beginning in 1755. Today's Grand-Pré, Grand-Pré National Historic Site of Canada, is a place that touches the hearts of millions of Acadians—and millions of others who have come to know its history. A.J.B. (John) Johnston, a historian with Parks Canada, has published extensively, on French colonial Louisbourg in particular. W.P. (Wayne) Kerr, an interpretation specialist with Parks Canada, has overseen the development of numerous exhibits and other projects in Atlantic Canada.
