DESTINATION: MADAWASKA, the teacher

In the Foreword to ‘Destination’, I talk about the absence of Acadian history in the curricula of our public schools in North America. Ask anyone if they have ever heard of Acadia, most will draw a blank. Some might mention Acadia National Park on Mount Desert Island, Maine without knowing the connection between the park and the colony.

I believe that those of us who descend from the Acadians, have a responsibility to tell our children about Acadia.

But ‘Destination: Madawaska’ also tells about the life of Charles Terriault, an Acadian whose grandfather, Joseph was forced to move his family of seven children through the forests of New Brunswick and Québec to save themselves from the English.

Give ‘Destination: Madawaska’ to your children or grandchildren for their birthday, or for Christmas.
