BOOK - Deportation of the Prince Edward Island Acadians
By Earle Lockerby
Published by Nimbus Publlishing, Halifax, 2008
Deportation of the Prince Edward Island Acadians is an important account of the saga of the Prince Edward Island Acadians published for the 250th anniversary of the deportation. The deportation of approximately three thousand French settlers from Prince Edward Island in 1758 is a story which has been largely overshadowed by the removal of six to seven thousand Acadians from Nova Scotia in 1755.
The research of historian Earle Lockerby has shed a great deal of new light on the deportation from Prince Edward Island--the management and implementation; the poignant personal accounts of captives; the disastrous loss of life; and the successful escape of close to 1,500 settlers who eluded their would-be captors. This book is well illustrated by portraits of the key players, maps, and excerpts of original documents.
