History of the Cajuns by Alex Loya

I would like to buy a copy of this book but the "buy" link on his website doesn't work. Can anyone put me in touch with him.

I am a Loya by birth and just discovered that Antonio (Antoine) Loya was born in Acadia, New France, that is Nova Scotia, Canada. He died in San Elizario, Texas. My grandfather told me that his people came from San Elizario and many of my family members whom I have researched are from San Eli, Socorro, or Ysleta Texas, including myself.

Alex Loya's book links Acadia, New France with San Elizario. Very exciting. I want to know more. I always thought that my branch of Loyas, though Basque, came through Spain to San Elizario. But they were right on the border of France. Why not take that route. I can hardly wait to learn more. I just moved to New Iberia, LA and plan to research here.

Please Alex, if you read this tell me how I can get your book.
