A Journey to Find Home

41 pages29 minutes


When the Acadians were exiled from Nova Scotia with only the clothes on their backs, how did they survive the journey from Canada to South Louisiana? How did they travel? What did they eat? How did they acquire their needs-food, clothing, and shelter? What dangers did they encounter on their journey? It took extraordinary people to accept the challenge of traveling across an entire nation to find a new home.

I tried to imagine what the Acadians went through in route to their new home. This fictional story is about their journey and the obstacles they faced to find a permanent place to live. It not based on real events nor is it based on real people. The characters’ first and last names are the only things true to the Acadians.

I hope you enjoy my story.
