A 120-page paperback book that describes the French-Acadian, or Cajun, people with the accuracy and dignity to which they are entitled -- contrary to the shallow, stereotyping manner in which they have been depicted by many of the news media.

Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

Many of the articles about the Cajuns and their land can only be described as superficial, distorted works done by writers who were either short on time, short on competence, or so burdened down with preconceived notions that a well-balanced story was virtually impossible to begin with. To read some of these stories, you'd swear that all the Cajuns do is eat, drink and dance! They are portrayed as a glib bunch of beer-drinkin', two-steppin', party-goin' types who are a bit short on intelligence, integrity and ingenuity. It's true that the Cajun people and their culture are noticeably different than mainstream America in some ways. But these differences have been exaggerated to the point that some of the stories border on fiction.
