During the Great Upheaval of 1755, the British forced the Acadians to leave their homes in the Canadian Provinces. Fourteen-year-old Marie Landry and her family thought they had found a new home in Maryland, but ten years after the Great Upheaval, they must join a mass exodus to Louisiana where land awaits them. In this heartfelt collection of diary entries, Marie documents her journey.

The heritage of the North American Indian tribes has always been passed down through storytelling as well as rituals of dance and song. Few written histories today can recount the past as well as the tribal elders who once served as the historical, philosophical, and cultural educators of the entire community. Mary Louise Clifford’s When the Great Canoes Came recreates this lost practice for young readers as the setting for telling the history of the Virginian Indians following their first contact with European explorers at Jamestown.
