From the Back Cover:

Originally published in 1929 under the title The Romance of Evangeline, this novel by author and legendary screenwriter Finis Fox remarkably captures the essence of Henry Wadsworth Longfellow's epic and makes both a handy complement to and a respectable adaptation of the original.

In his foreword to the original edition, the author promised that "while those acquainted with the original verse may find missing in this new version the lilting rhythm and beauty of the metered lines, they will be repaid in this new telling with infinitely more detail and incident than can be found in the poetry, and without too much digression from Longfellow's story."

Fox fulfilled his promise with this dramatic, moving, and memorable telling of Evangeline Bellefountaine and Gabriel Lajeunesse, the two Acadian lovers separated during the expulsion of the French settlers from Nova Scotia.

Also available are the original poem Evangeline, the renowned Pamphile Le May French translation Evang�line, and the book that many scholars believe inspired Longfellow, The Neutral French: The Exiles of Nova Scotia. All are published by Pelican.

From the Inside Flap:

A classic of romantic literature, Evangeline tells the story of a young Grand Pré couple separated by the Expulsion of the Acadians. From the cypress groves of Louisiana to the forests of the Ozarks and the plains of the Midwest, Evangeline's heroic lifelong search for Gabriel ends with their tragic reunion. First published in 1847, Evangeline is one of the most affecting accounts of unfulfilled love ever written. In this edition, engravings from the 1866 Bell and Daldy edition illustrate Henry Wadsworth Longfellow's moving poem.
