Robert 'Bob' Chaulk (b. Notre Dame Bay, Newfoundland).
“The Chain Locker is a powerful novel based on the tragic loss of the SS Viking off Newfoundland in 1931. In a bold re-creation of the drama, author Bob Chaulk begins his story when 13-year-old Jackie Gould stows away on a sealing ship. All is well until the ship is mysteriously blown up in the winter ice and Jackie is left floating with another sailor on an ice floe. Now, all they have as they face the harsh winter environment is their ingenuity - and their trust in each other. Chaulk spins a riveting tale in this story of courage and survival in the North Atlantic.” (from the back cover).
