Overview

In this amazing tale of adventure, George Kennan tells the story of his expedition through the Siberian wilderness with a small team of explorers. In 1864 Kennan, funded by the Russo-American Telegraph Company, set out to do the seemingly impossible-telegraphically connect the United States and Europe via land lines running through the Bering Straits and Siberia. Kennan and his comrades survived for two years in the vast, perilous wilderness of uncharted Siberia, seeing sights no man had ever seen and meeting nomadic peoples completely isolated from civilization.

With beautiful detail, poignant insight, and Twain-like wit, Kennan writes of the incredible sights of an uncharted world and the landscapes of the human mind. As enjoyable today as it was 140 years ago, Tent Life in Siberia is a timeless piece of storytelling to excite and enthrall any lover of adventure literature.
