Eighteenth-century Danish explorer Vitus Bering led historic expeditions to the Russian Far East and Alaska under the patronage of Peter the Great, and his wife Anna Christina accompanied him on his expedition to Okhotsk in 1739. The letters that they wrote over the following year make up the core of this volume, which features facing-page translations from the original German. The documents offer an intimate look into eighteenth-century customs as well as the explorers' family life and daily routine. Also featured is an inventory of goods that Anna Christina brought back to Moscow after Bering's death in 1742, revealing key insights into the types of goods available in Russia at the time. "Until Death Do Us Part" is a richly informative volume that will be essential for all those interested in European history and travel writing.
