A castaway on the shores of one of the most isolated parts of Nova Scotia. A man with legs amputated, just small stumps left behind. The bandages were still fresh. Little in the way of clothing, and unable to speak. When asked for his name, he provided something that sounded like Jerome, but nothing more.
Unable to speak English, he also couldn’t understand any other language.
How did this man end up on the shores of Nova Scotia at Sandy Cove? Where did he come from?
It is a mystery that many have been unable to solve to this day.
This week, we look at the story of Jerome of Sandy Cove, or as he is also known, Jerome of Baie Sainte-Marie.
