Summary
The Russian Empire once extended deep into America: in 1818 Russia's furthest outposts were in California and Hawaii. The dreamer behind this great Imperial vision was Nikolai Rezanov - diplomat, adventurer, courtier, millionaire, and gambler. From the glittering court of Catherine the Great to the wilds of the New World, Matthews conjures an original portrait of one of Russia's most eccentric Empire-builders
