The island is divided by language: one half French
one half English. It sits in the middle of
the Gulf of St. Lawrence. In the 1700s, as an English
ship was preparing to sail across the Atlantic, the captain anchored so some of the crew could go ashore and pick blueberries on the island. He sent a boat ashore with several men. When the boat returned to the ship one man had stayed on the island. His name was Clark: he was the progenitor of
the English half of the island.
