Interactive, multimedia presentations make
exploring Acadian culture and history fun and easy on this CD-ROM that is conveniently divided into sections on culture, history, genealogy, and even tours of Nova Scotia and the Maritimes.
Users can witness the progression of the series of deportations, take a virtual tour of a historical village like Grand Pr?, and listen to songs by artists like 1755, the most popular musical group in Acadian history. In the process they may better understand just who the Acadians are. And with a dictionary that can be heard as well as read, comprehending the French language
becomes much easier, too.
