Keys to History
In the 1960s and 1970s, writers, songwriters and artists began to sketch a portrait of an Acadie with new values, yet still marked by the tragedy of the Deportation of 1755.
Claude LeBouthillier's novel, L'Acadien reprend son pays, published by Éditions d'Acadie of Moncton in 1977, can be called utopian. In it Acadians take back their land, their natural resources and their future.
In 2000 Claude LeBouthillier received New Brunswick's Pascal Poirier Award for excellence in French-language literature, for his body of work.
This utopian novel looks at a possible Acadie of tomorrow.
One of the author's poems is reprinted on the back cover, signed "Claude LeBouthillier, Bas-Caraquet, Acadie."
The photo on the inside front cover was taken near Caraquet, about 1905, by Father Joseph Courtois, CJM
The cover was designed by artist Jacques Lafond.
