Dozens of voices celebrate—in essays, stories, plays, poetry, songs, and art—the Franco-American and Acadian experience in Maine. They explore subjects as diverse as Quebec-Maine frontier history, immigrant drama, work, genealogy, discrimination, women, community affairs, religion, archeology, politics, literature, language, and humor. The voices, themselves, are equally diverse, including Norman Beaupré, Michael Michaud, Ross and Judy Paradis, Susann Pelletier, John Martin, Béatrice Craig, Michael Parent, Linda Pervier, Alaric Faulkner, Ray Levasseur, Yves Frenette, Paul Paré, Yvon Labbé, Rev. Clement Thibodeau, Bob Chenard, Denis Ledoux, Josée Vachon, Greg Chabot, Jean-Paul Poulain, Stewart Doty, Rhea Côté Robbins, and many others. This is a rich resource and an engaging read, one that will resonate with many.

Review: Voyages: A Maine Franco-American Reader

User Review  - Tom - Goodreads

Cross-disciplinary anthology, edited by the director of Franco-American studies at the U of Maine, Lewiston/Auburn. Varied in quality and content but a good composite snapshot of Maine Franco culture. A regional update of Claire Quintal's now 10-year old "Steeples and Smokestacks." Read full review
