About this title


Perry McDonough Collins was the first American to journey through Siberia and down the 2,690-mile Amur River to the Pacific Ocean. In 1860 he wrote A Voyage Down the Amoor, an account of his adventures, and his book proved so popular that it was reissued in 1864. Siberian Journey consists of Collins’s original text framed by an interpretive introduction and explanatory notes by Charles Vevier, providing an extensive, first-hand account of Russia’s land and its people in the mid–nineteenth century.

About the Author:

Perry McDonough Collins (1813–1900) was the visionary behind the Russian–American telegraph, also known as the Collins Overland telegraph, which came about as a result of his journey. Charles Vevier (1924–95) was vice chancellor of the University of Wisconsin–Milwaukee.
