Synopsis: A surprising tale of the struggle for survival, The Navigator's Wife is the fictionalized true story of the 1808 shipwreck of the Russian fur trade explorer ship Sv. Nickolai, aground off the isolated coast of the Olympic Peninsula, and the capture of its entire crew including the young wife of the navigator, Anna Petrovna Bulygin, by Makah native people. Anna's struggle to survive in alien and harsh circumstances, the choices she makes, and the insistence with which she masters her environment make her a heroine for all time. Galer's vivid prose has been compared to Joseph Conrad or Jack London. Fleshing the skeleton of the scant factual information, this true event combines adventure, little known history, and a cross cultural love story. "A wonderful literary adventure." Ken Owens, author of The Wreck of the Sv. Nicolai.

From the Back Cover: After the survivors of the Sv. Nikolai's shipwreck returned to Sitka in 1810, expedition leader Timofei Tarakanov described their experiences to a visiting Russian naval officer. That description, originally published in a Russian naval journal, has become the basis for all later retellings of the story. Author Jane Galer has now adroitly placed this straightforward narrative within a broad social and cultural setting, reimagining these events primarily from a feminine perspective. Her heroine is Anna Petrovna, married to the incompetent, ailing ship's navigator. Soon Anna's capture by the Makah people leads her to a complete cultural and personal switch of loyalties. In exploring this remarkable change, Galer's writing is skillful, her plotting is ingenious, and her sympathetic amplification of Anna Petrovna's story makes this volume a wonderful literary adventure.-Ken Owens, author of The Wreck of the Sv. Nikolai
