Masterful first work, 11 Dec. 2013
Interesting, informative, even inspiring, and beautifully written. Not only a gripping tale of daring maritime adventure, but also a meticulously researched and vividly painted picture of English and Russian life in the 16th century. Will appeal to a wide range of readers - historians, geographers, and anyone with a taste for armchair adventure!
