"[A] distinguished book."--Slavonic and East European Review
"An important contribution to the history of travel, and a work which is a delight to read."--Journal of the West
"Mr. Watrous has painstakingly prepared a scholarly and informative volume which should head the list of materials concerned with the American explorer John Ledyard . . . The Ledyard journal and related letters provide the reader with a fascinating view of eighteenth-century Russia (particularly Asiatic Russia) as well as an insight into the explorer."--Slavic Review
"The editor . . . includes not only the Journal but also letters, correspondence, and reports pertaining to Ledyard's Siberian trip. . . . The account holds our attention and provides interesting side lights on American and Siberian affairs, as well as on a remarkable personality."--American Historical Review
"Vast and meticulous research."--The Russian Review
