Summaries of Book :

In the northeast of what is now the country of Tanzania sits Mount Kilimanjaro, the tallest mountain in Africa. At the base of the mountain live the Chagga people, known throughout the region as the caretakers of the mountain. Co-written by Eric Walters and Godfrey Nkongolo, Light a Candle weaves nonfiction with fiction to tell the story of a boy coming of age in the shadow of Kilimanjaro and his father, the chief of their tribe. The boy climbs the mountain against his father's wishes to fulfill a request of the country's first leader, Julius Nyerere, to light a candle on the top of the mountain and unify the mainland of Tanganyika and the islands of Zanzibar as one country, the United Republic of Tanzania.

Book Excerpt:

Finalist for the Governor General’s Literary Award, Young People’s Literature – Illustrated Books When a young girl visits the site of Africville, in Halifax, Nova Scotia, the stories she’s heard from her family come to mind. She imagines what the community was once like — the brightly painted houses nestled into the hillside, the field where boys played football, the pond where all the kids went rafting, the bountiful fishing, the huge bonfires. Coming out of her reverie, she visits the present-day park and the sundial where her great- grandmother’s name is carved in stone, and celebrates a summer day at the annual Africville Reunion/Festival. Africville was a vibrant Black community for more than 150 years. But even though its residents paid municipal taxes, they lived without running water, sewers, paved roads and police, fire-truck and ambulance services. Over time, the city located a slaughterhouse, a hospital for infectious disease, and even the city garbage dump nearby. In the 1960s, city officials decided to demolish the community, moving people out in city dump trucks and relocating them in public housing. Today, Africville has been replaced by a park, where former residents and their families gather each summer to remember their community.

Book Excerpt:

Your name is William Brewster. You live in glorious Elizabethan England during the Reformation. Church doctrine and attendance are strictly mandated by the ruling monarchy. Nonconformists are fined, imprisoned, or executed. At Cambridge, some insist that good men must never submit to tyranny. After your dearest friends are betrayed by the country they serve, you hunger to hear the secret preaching of the newly translated Scriptures. Is it worth the risk? Decades before the Mayflower voyage and Plimouth Plantation, English commoners, emboldened by reading the Scriptures for themselves, gave up everything for freedom to worship. Brewster and men like William Bradford and Edward Winslow flee first to Holland, then to New England, suffering endless hardships. They make surprising friends and enemies, while lighting the candle of a new nation. Though persecuted and betrayed, the Pilgrims didn't give up on their faith. The Thanksgiving Story You Never Knew from the very beginning.
