What People are Saying About This

John Reid

"The research in Kouchibouguac is meticulous. Rudin's excellent and innovative study integrates not only documentary sources but also interviews, theatrical portrayals, and his own engagement with the changing landscape."

James Kenny

"In Kouchibouguac,Ronald Rudin tells the compelling story of the state-led relocation of Kent County residents in New Brunswick to make way for the Kouchibouguac National Park in the 1970s, the ways in which some residents' resisted removal, and, finally, how the memory and commemoration of this sad high modernist tale has changed over the past forty years. Rudin tells the expropriates' stories sensitively, painting a compelling picture of their communities and survival strategies and of the impact of relocation."
