Captain Bob Bartlett and the Karluk Adventure

  Author:   Ron Young  
  Artist :   Mel D’Souza    
  Publisher:  Downhomer

It was 1913 and the ship Karluk left British Columbia on a scientific expedition to Canada’s Artic. At her wheel was Captain Robert Abram Bartlett, the “Master Mariner of the North” from Brigus, Newfoundland.

The Karluk became trapped in the early winter ice and was carried across the Artic Ocean, where it was crushed and sank. The crew and passengers set up camp on the ice and months later, when daylight returned to the Artic, they walked to an island. From there, the brave Captain Bartlett left the survivors while he and a young Inuk walked a treacherous 700 miles down the coast of Siberia to get help. This is one of the greatest stories of heroism and survival ever told.
