The Land in Between

In THE LAND IN BETWEEN, by Beatrice Craig and Maxime Dagenais, the “land in between” is the upper Saint John Valley, a region straddling the Maine-New Brunswick border. A zone of contacts between different Native American cultures until the arrival of the Europeans, it was disputed by the British and the French in the colonial period and settled by Acadians and French Canadians in the eighteenth century. To this day, it has remained the site of a distinct French American culture, and its residents have striven to preserve their specificity and unity despite the international boundary.

In THE LAND IN BETWEEN, by Beatrice Craig and Maxime Dagenais, the “land in between” is the upper Saint John Valley, a region straddling the Maine-New Brunswick border. A zone of contacts between different Native American cultures until the arrival of the Europeans, it was disputed by the British and the French in the colonial period and settled by Acadians and French Canadians in the eighteenth century. To this day, it has remained the site of a distinct French American culture, and its residents have striven to preserve their specificity and unity despite the international boundary. The Land in Between is a narrative survey history of this fascinating and unique region and is also designed to serve as a reference for teachers, librarians, archivists, and historians. It includes documents (many translated from the original), maps, and an extensive bibliography.

Review:

“Rarely in one’s reviewing career does a new book arrive as an instant, recognizable classic. However, “The Land in Between: The Upper St. John Valley, Prehistory to World War I” comes remarkably close to that designation. This is a big, substantive work that is so well-organized, it reads like a dream.” -William David Barry, Maine Sunday Telegram
