    Alaska Extreme Survival At Its Best!

    The year was 1741. Cold, no roads, no bridges. Bering was a Danish captain hired to see if Russia and America were connected. They didn't even know that Alaska existed. Maps were messed up by a French map maker. Bering wanted to go, discover and then get back to Russia. Steller was a German naturalist - he wanted to take his time, smell the plants, study the animals, get to know 'the Americans'. Bering and Steller fought bitterly, ultimately resulting in the death of one of them. Most of the Russian sailors also died. They got shipwrecked on a deserted island. If you like ancient science, sailing when sailors were sailors, discovery, non-scientists ignoring scientists, the history of scurvy, ethnic conflict, this book is for you. A classic of cold sailing survival.
