He convincingly dispels many received notions about the routes Acadians traveled from Nova Scotia to Louisiana, their original settlement sites, and the patterns of their subsequent migrations within the state, and closely examines the relations of Louisianas Acadians with their black, Spanish, Indian, and Creole neighbors.In adapting to subtropical Louisiana, with its turmoil of alternating French and Spanish regimes, the Acadians exhibited industry, pragmatism, individualism, and the ability to close ranks in the face of a general threat.

As Brasseaux reveals, Acadians cohesiveness and insularity preserved the core elements of their culture and helped them adjust to new physical and social demands.
