Book Description
At the height of the devastating October Gale of 1967, a small schooner, the Sea Clipper, was driven onto a reef at Spotted Island, Labrador. Already seriously damaged from an earlier collision with another schooner, she was being pounded to pieces by the raging sea. The twenty-seven people on board faced certain doom. Miraculously, a young sea captain from Renews, William Jackman, appeared on the scene to undertake one of the most amazing sea rescues ever known, and to earn for himself the Silver Medal of the Royal Humane Society of London and the undying adulation of the people of Newfoundland and Labrador.

About the Author
Eldon Drodge, born and raised in Newfoundland, recently retired after a 35 year career in the Computer Industry. He now resides with his wife Joan in Torbay, where gardening, painting, and woodworking are among his many hobbies. A long-standing sports enthusiast, he still plays old-timers' hockey and spends countless hours at the rinks and soccer fields watching his grandsons play.

The many boyhood holidays spent at his birthplace of Little Heart's Ease, Trinity Bay where he listened to endless stories told by his grandparents, aunts, and uncles, instilled in him a deep love of outport life and a lasting interest in the history of his forefathers.

Jackman is his first publication.
