Henry Wadsworth Longfellow's epic poem Evangeline tells the story of two young people deported from beautiful Acadie just before they are to be married--and their search for each other that lasts the rest of their lives. First published in 1847, the poem has been important to Acadian identity ever since. In Evangeline for Young Readers , the tragic story of Evangeline and Gabriel's deportation is recounted to a new generation. In simple prose true to Longfellow's poem, H#65533;l#65533;ne Boudreau describes the utopian village of Grand-Pr#65533; where Evangeline grows up, the traumatizing deportation and Evangeline's relentless search across America for her true love. Patsy MacKinnon's stunning illustrations bring the story to life in full color.
