Description
In the spring of 1553, three ships sailed northeast from London into uncharted waters, seeking a passage to Asia and its riches. Separated in a storm, young scientist Richard Chancellor and his crew eventually reached Russia, where they would meet Tsar Ivan the Terrible and open British trading with the East. But as James Evans details in this history—which features 16 pages of color illustrations—the two ships commanded by Sir Hugh Willoughby vanished in the Arctic, where the coming of winter made escape impossible.

"Evans gives a rich account of a lesser-known voyage that had a profound impact on England's age of exploration.... Balanced and stimulating, Evans has produced a work suited to history buffs and general-interest readers alike."—Publishers Weekly
