The Hermit of Africville - Jon Tatterie
Eddie Carvery was born in Africville, NS when the African-Nova Scotian seaside village was midway through it's third century. As a teenager he watched his world torn down as his friends and family were compelled to leave. After Africville was bulldozed in the 1960s under the guise of "urban renewal" Eddie Carvery returned to the site of his former hometown and pitched a tent in protest.
This book tells the story of Eddie Carvery's life, community work and peaceful protest in Africville.
