Editorial Reviews


“A book of genuine value and interest not only to those concerned with Siberia but to anyone who likes great journeys.”—John A. Harrison, Journal of Asian Studies

“Collins is a lively writer with full appreciation for all that was colorful in the mysterious region through which he was the first American to pass, and he has genuine zest for the people he met along the way. The book presents an interesting account of Russian–American relations in the mid-nineteenth century.”—New World Review
