Andy’s is an account of a very special young Acadian who came from a fishing family in Mont Carmel, Prince Edward Island, taught himself how to read and write in English, rode the rails to work the harvest, became a rum-runner during Prohibition, played poker, gambled and loved race horses, served as a city councillor for three terms, helped the poor and sponsored sports teams, built a fox farming business and then a restaurant business, saved a horse that broke track records, lived life fully, joked and laughed, loved his family and took care of others. This book has won two heritage awards.
