Book DescriptionEmpress Anna Ivanova decrees that Danish-born Captain-Commander Vitus Jonassen Bering is to spearhead an ambitious Imperial Great Northern Expedition to explore and map the coastal waters off Siberia, chart a northern sea route to Japan and Cathay, and prove or disprove once and for all the existence of a new continent believed to lie between Russia and the Americas. This extraordinary novel charts the thrilling story of one of the greatest but least known of all journeys of exploration.
