BOOK - The History of Acadia, From the Discovery to Its Surrender to England by the Treaty of Paris
By James Hannay

Softcover... 29.95 (C$)

Originally published in 1879, this modern reprint of The History of Acadia provides a comprehensive history of the settlement of the Acadians and their eventual expulsion from what became part of British North America after the Treaty of Paris. The author, James Hannay was and remains a highly respected author who's works include this and other important histories such as his History of New Brunswick

It is difficult enough to write a book once, but Hannay had to write this book twice. Half of his printed volume and most of his manuscript was burned in the 1877 fire at St. John, New Brunswick. Undaunted, he rebuilt his research files and wrote the book again.

The entire book is devoted to the French history of Acadia. Though written by an Englishman, it is missing the usual bias that one might expect.

Chapter headings include:
  • Early voyages to the Northern Parts of America
  • the Aborigines of Acadia
  • Champlain's Discoveries and the Island of Ste-Croix
  • The Colony at Port Royal
  • Poutrincourt's Colony
  • Sir William Alexander and the Latour
  • Isaac de Razilly's Colony
  • Civil War in Acadia
  • The Sieges and Capture of Fort La Tour
  • The Death of Charnisay
  • LaTour Returns to Acadia
  • The English in Acadia
  • From Grand-Fontaine to Menneval
  • Villebon on the St.John
  • The Capture of Port Royal
  • The Acadian People
  • The English at Annapolis
  • The Capture of Louisbourg
  • The Capitulation at Grand-Pre
  • La Loutre and His Work
  • The Fall of Beausejour
  • The Expulsion of the Acadians The Seven Year's War
