One of the South's most famous if not most photographed trees — The Evangeline Oak — is the subject of a Stephen Malkoff's long remembered work of art.
As the story goes, it was under this huge oak that the Acadian maiden Evangeline came to rejoin her long lost love, only to learn he had moved on and she had missed him by a day. As beautifully told by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow in his famous poem, "Evangeline," the sad tale has become part of the rich Acadian lore in St. Martinsville, Louisiana.
