Overview

Master of Alaska -the exciting story of Aleksandr Baranov, a charismatic Russian leader, who left his family in 1790 to sail to Alaska as chief manager. Shipwrecked, he survived a harsh wilderness; motivated Aleuts to help him; married a young Native; and endured massacres from the Tlingit, meddling priests, the Battle of Sitka and a running duel with powerful Tlingit Chief Katlian. He built an empire and sought peace with the Tlingit, helped by his wife and teenage daughter. Alaska is part of the U.S. today, thanks largely to Baranov.

"A rip-roaring tale... cleanly written."

IdeaBank founder - Charles Francis

"An exciting opening...with the dangerous Alaskan weather...Powerful scenes: the Aleut chief honors Baranov with the Aleut name "Nanuq"...the whipping of Chief Chokta, revealing much about the two sides of Baranov's character. I keep thinking about the story and its characters!"
