In 2012 the Landscape of Grand Pré, which includes the entire Grand Pré Marsh and portions of North Grand Pré, Hortonville, Grand Pré, and Lower Wolfville, was declared Nova Scotia's third UNESCO World Heritage Site. This newest addition to the Stories of our Past series details the area's physical and cultural evolution in an accessible, highly visual format. Grand Pré explores the interrelationship of the peoples and landscape of Grand Pré, from the legacies of the dykelands to the record-breaking tides of the Minas Basin. With a focus on the resilient first peoples of Grand Pré-the Mi'kmaq and the Acadians-the book explores the implications of the Grand Dérangement, including the arrival of New England Planter and Scots settlers, the twentieth-century Acadian Renaissance, and the creation of the "Land of Evangeline." Includes informative sidebars and 50 colour photos.
