It chronicles the lives of French-speaking people who came mainly from France, Canada, Switzerland, Belgium, Africa, and the Caribbean Islands from the 1500s to present times. It reaches out to the French in the American Southwest from California to Texas and beyond, on the Santa Fe and other trails,  and in northern Mexico.
