One of the largest bilingual Franco-American territories in the United States, the beautiful Upper St. John Valley is revealed in over two hundred images and accompanying text in this fascinating pictorial history, which covers the regions from Hamlin Plantation to Allagash along the river and south to Eagle Lake, Winterville, and Guerette. The Upper St. John Valley is a product of the dispersal of the Acadian French by the English in 1755 and 1785. Tested by a severe climate and semi-isolation for years, the Valley inhabitants were strong survivors. Through images dated up to 1960 we see the intense religious feeling, strong work ethic, and leisure activity of the people living in this unique enclave.
