Revisiting Anne Marie

by:
Marie Rundquist (Author)

ISBN: 0-7414-7044-6 ©2012
Price: $22.95
Book Size: 5.5'' x 8.5'' , 138 pages
Category/Subject: HISTORY / Native American

Spanning two centuries, from the early 1600s to the mid-1700s, Revisiting Anne Marie engages the reader in the history of a family cut from European and Amerindian (Mi'kmaq) cloth, from the family's brave beginnings in Nova Scotia to its exile in Snow Hill, Maryland, following the Grand Deportation of 1755. The story of Anne Marie's family comes to life with art, source citations and references, first hand observations and photographs, as the author interweaves the inter-relationships that comprise Anne Marie's extended family in l'Acadie with the history and politics of the time. Through an overlay of new genetic information, the author challenges traditional perceptions as she brings forth, generation by generation, the diverse society that becomes the foundation of our “American” heritage. The early history of l'Acadie and its peoples, when coupled with Marie Rundquist's landmark DNA finding and documented maternal-line ancestry, assumes a new dimension -- one that includes a diversity of culture and family lines. At the story's conclusion, a uniquely “American” identity emerges – one that saw the beginning of a new Nation, belonging to a people fueled not by the passions of Europe, but by a distinctly North American fire that burns brightly still today. This identity has passed, like a torch, from generation to generation of the author's family, and Revisiting Anne Marie brings it now to an even wider audience.
