Nova Scotia is haunted by her former self – Acadia, first settled in 1605. The landscape immortalized by Longfellow through his tale of lovers separated by the Acadian expulsion of 1755, has come to be known as the Land of Evangeline; the best-loved of Canada’s literary shrines.
No one can read about Grand Pré without wanting to visit Acadia; no one can visit Acadia without becoming fascinated by its history.
