Drawing from personal accounts, French- and English-language newspapers and records from the legislative assembly, Wilbur chronicles the Acadians' century-long search for cultural autonomy and political equality.
He records how the political activities of French New Brunswickers helped them obtain French-language education and social services and led to the declaration of their province as Canada's only officially bilingual province.
