New Book Coming for 2021
The cover may change when we get into final design, but as of right now this is what the temporary cover for my next book looks like.
As with the earlier Ni’n na L’nu: The Mi’kmaq of Prince Edward Island (2013), this new book will once again be co-authored with Jesse Francis and be published by PEI’s Acorn Press. Our previous book won three awards, including the prestigious best-Atlantic-published book for the year it appeared. (The book was later published in French as well.) This time, the focus is on the multiple histories—Mi’kmaq, French, Acadian and British—of a fascinating place: Skmaqn—Port-la-Joye—Fort Amherst National Historic Site of Canada.
Jesse and I had hoped Ancient Land, New Land would have come out in 2020, but the coming of COVID-19 thwarted that plan.
And maybe that was fortunate. The delay meant we have added much more material, including some specially commissioned artwork the world has never seen before.
When the cover—and publication details—are finalized I will post something on this site.
