Acadians emigrated from France in the seventeenth century. During that century, these Acadians established a country in northeastern North America known as Acadia, living there for over one hundred years, until the French and Indian War in the middle of the eighteenth century. Upon the expulsion from their country by the English, Acadia became Nova Scotia, Cape Breton and Prince Edward Islands, and part of New Brunswick, Canada. Over the next fifty years, Acadians were scattered from Quebec, to the Upper Saint John Valley of Maine, along the eastern coast of the original colonies, back to France, and as far south as Louisiana and the Caribbean. The book takes place from 1755 until 1955. It describes America's wars, the logging industry of the northeast United States, Maine's famous potato farms, the Roaring Twenties and the Great Depression of 1929. Eleven generations of family unity persevered through love of religion, language, and customs. They carried on with grit, determination, and ingenuity.
