Journey to the Promised LandBook - 2017
Acadian leader, Pierre Belliveau, known as Piau, led hundreds of Acadians into the wilderness to escape the Acadian Expulsion. He vowed to lead them to the Promised Land, where they could live without fear of deportation. Over the years he became a prisoner of war, was deported to Boston, and built a castle before finally leading his people to Memramcook, New Brunswick, the Promised Land. The true story explores both the armed and quiet resistance of the Acadian people and a historical Acadian figure who dedicated his life to securing the safety and wellbeing of his people. Told by a direct descendant of Pierre Belliveau, Bruce Murray, it is a story of suffering, courage, and hope.
