  • Overview

    Bob Chaulk's dramatic story begins in 1931 when thirteen-year-old Jackie Gould is a stowaway on the steamer "Viking" bound for the sealing grounds of the North Atlantic. When the ship's supply of blasting powder accidentally explodes, Jackie finds himself drifting on a piece of ice in the dark with an older sailor. The Chain Locker shows us how heroism, loyalty, and friendship play out in this amazing novel based on true stories about brave Newfoundland sealers.
