Seeking an Acadian Nation
The 1930 Diary of an Evangeline Girl

By Warren A. Perrin and Mary B. Perrin

Seeking an Acadian Nation tells the real-life story, in words and vintage photographs, of the epic 1930 journey led by Sen. Dudley J. LeBlanc, which he called the “First Official Pilgrimage of Louisiana Acadians to Grand-Pré, Nova Scotia.” The trip, which celebrated the 175th anniversary of the Acadian Deportation, marked the first time Cajuns returned to their ancestral homeland and began the process of a Grand Reunification between the Acadian families of Canada and their cousins in the United States. The book, which traces the evolution of this reunification up to the present time, contains over 200 pages of historic photos and text in a large format that will make an ideal holiday gift, coffee table book, or conversation starter.
