America in the plans of Peter the Great / Boris P. Polevoi.

Author(s): Polevoi, Boris P.
Date: 1992.
Publisher: Anchorage, AK: Alaska Historical Society
In: Bering and Chirikov : the American voyages and their impact. (1992.),
Abstract: Considers Russian ruler's intentions for Kamchatka expeditions led by Bering. Denies that Peter's objective was simply that Bering should travel north until he located strait separating Russia from America.
