Introducing Young People to Cajun History May 26, 2008
Cajuns and Their Acadian Ancestors is an excellent first book for any young person interested in the history of the Cajun people. Nicely illustrated and very readable, the book draws on the broad range of academic Cajun studies to produce a overview of the Cajun & Acadian history from the groups origins in France to Nova Scotia to Louisiana. Cultural history is covered as well. This book should be in all public and school libraries in Louisiana and in many places outside so young people can explore the history of this unique group.
