L’Histoire des francophones de Terre-Neuve at du Labrador
From the back cover -----
Savoir d'ou on vient, c'est aussi savoir ou on va. Ce vieil adage releve d'un sens commun qui est souvent tenu pour acquis, mais lorsqu'on est originaire d'une petite communaute qui cherche a s'epanouir, cette affirmation prend alors une importance que seuls les peuples qui ont a se battre pour survivre peuvent apprecier .
. C'est le cas des francophones de Terre-Neuve et du Labrador. Leur histoire, transmise de bouche a oreille, constitue un des recits les plus originaux, et elle se distingue par le fait qu'elle est en partie independante des grands courants de la francophonie du continent. Elle est liee, bien entendu, aux Acadiens deportes, mais elle est surtout tributaire de la tenacite de « graviers » frant;;ais a la recherche d'un monde meilleur.
