The story of Russia's move east into the vast expanse of Siberia is one filled with extraordinary characters, adventure, violence and cruelty, triumph and tragedy. It went on for more than half a millenium and even today is not complete. R. Bruce Lincoln, whose three-volume history of the Russian Revolution is a classic, here deals with a subject comparable in importance to the opening of the American West, but until now scarcely known, ranging from the Mongol hordes to the Gulag. To write it, he has drawn upon a huge array of original sources. The result is fascinating, an epic history on an epic scale.
