Book description:
Elsie Sark, an enigma and a legend, came to the Lennox Island Reserve, Prince Edward Island, in 1918 as the English bride of Mi’kmaq war hero John J. Sark.

Greeted on arrival by her father-in-law Chief John T. Sark and an assembly of Mi’kmaq residents, she found herself in the midst of a community in conflict. Without relinquishing her Victorian manner she settled on the Reserve, raising a family. Her life story sheds new light on Native-white relations on Prince Edward Island, but more than that, it bears witness to one woman’s dedication to her community and family.

Micmac by Choice is the inspiring account of a remarkable woman and of the remarkable community she chose as her home.
