Summary
"In the first biography of Bering written in more than a century, Orcutt Frost chronicles the life of this extraordinary explorer. Drawing on a wide range of new evidence - including personal letters and archaeological evidence derived from the recent discovery of Bering's grave site - the author reconstructs Bering's personality, his perilous voyages and his uneasy relationship with the naturalist Georg Steller."--Jacket
