James R. Gibson is professor emeritus of geography at York University. He is author of Otter Skins, Boston Ships, and China Goods: The Maritime Fur Trade of the Northwest Coast, 1785–1841 and The Lifeline of the Oregon Country: The Fraser-Columbia Brigade System, 1811–47.

Review:

“Fascinating account of the interaction of man and nature in the Russian Far East. . . . It deserves a place in the collection of every university and research library.”—Choice



“With meticulous scholarship, he has assembled scant and scattered bits of information on land and water transport, crop yields, milk production in Kamchatka, prices of vodka and other comestibles, weather, and population into a clear, well-told account of the great problem underlying all activity in the region, that of supply.”—Canadian Slavonic Papers



“[Gibson] brings together in one volume a rich source of geographical and historical facts pertaining to the attempts at development and the provisionment of the Okhotsk Seaboard and the Kamchatka Peninsula.”—Andrew D. Perejda, The Professional Geographer
