This pictorial documentary captures beautifully the lives and struggles of the Acadians (or Cajuns), a people whose history thread across two continents and three countries. This exodus began over two hundred years ago, beginning in France and ending along the bayou and flat lands of South Louisiana. Acadian influence in the area provides Louisiana with a distinctive cultural heritage and flavor, a factor that helps to make Louisiana stand out in the national scene. Author Myron Tassin and photographer Fonville Winans successfully capture the many faces of the Acadian people here, with Tassin putting this all to words in a lyrical style that flows poetically.
