TPL 3897. Sabin 17321. BAL 4001. "ACADIA: or, A Month with the Blue Noses (New York, 1859), by the America n humourist and essayist Frederick S. Cozzens, is interesting as a forerunner of the 'slick' travelogue designed to capture the popular market. It bears heavily on the wrongs suffered by the Acadians during their expulsion as symbolized by Longfellow's EVANGELINE: A Tale of Acadie, and Cozzens's many and obvious prejudices destroy the value of his observations." - Story, Oxford Companion to Canadian History and Literature.
