The Story of the Acadians begins with the arrival of the French at Isle St. Croix off the coast of Maine in 1604. Learn how the first French settlers brought with them pre-fabricated homes, hear about their strong relations with the native people, and witness the intricate system of dykes they introduced into North America. Most of all, learn how the French became Acadians with a culture of their own - of family values, of hard work and of determination never to be destroyed despite numerous attacks by the British, which culminated in their Deportation from Nova Scotia. Narrated by Layne Longfellow, whose relative Henry Wadsworth Longfellow immortalized the story of the Acadians in his poetry. Available in DVD; will only play on 2003 or later-model DVD players.
