Vol II: Steller's Journal of the Sea Voyage from Kamchatka to America and Return on the Second Expedition 1741-1742.
This is a story of exploration, scientific discovery and fortitude in the face of adversity.
Steller, a German naturalist, accompanied Bering’s second expedition. His journal provides a candid account of the events of the voyage, his interactions with, and opinions of, the ship’s officers, and his scientific discoveries. He gave the first written account of Steller’s seacow, a now-extinct manatee of the north Pacific. His scientific knowledge and force of character assisted several crew members shipwrecked on Bering Island to survive scurvy and the winter. [Suggest a different description.]
