Evangeline - Research

Readers interested in related fictional accounts might turn to: 
 Henry Wadsworth Longfellow – Evangeline
 Felix Voorhies – Acadian Reminiscences
 Sidonie de la Houssaye – Pouponne and Balthazar
 Antonine Maillet – Pelagie
 
And below are the books, mostly of non-fiction, which I found helpful in my research.  
It would be egregious not to thank my editor, Aaron Schlechter, who found several books for me that I never would have considered, most notably, B.A. Botkin’s A Treasury of Mississippi River Folklore, which is worth anyone’s time who cares at all for water, or America.
