About the Book
The Michel family began their journey to the American continent with the first French settlers in Acadia (now named Nova Scotia).
After many years of story gathering and research, this book attempts to bring together oral histories, official documents, and photos in order to achieve a better idea of one family's journey through political upheaval, economic hardship, and racial hatred.
What does it mean to be an American? Part I. covers the period between 1651-1945.
