490 1  A Samuel and Althea Stroum Book 
500    "A Samuel and Althea Stroum book." 
500    Frontispiece portrait of Baranov in 1819. 
504    Includes bibliographical references (pages 322-332) and 
       index. 
505 0  A man of the north -- Siberian merchant capitalist -- 
       Moving to America -- Taking command -- Calamities and 
       catastrophes -- The missionary monks and the chief manager
       -- Government men, monks, and the Alutiiq Rebellion -- The
       Russian-American Company -- The Sitka Sound War -- Beyond 
       Alaska -- Averting disasters -- Closing the Baranov era. 
520    A native of northern Russia, Alexander Baranov was a 
       middle-aged merchant trader with no prior experience in 
       the fur trade when, in 1790, he arrived in North America 
       to assume command over Russia's highly profitable sea 
       otter business. With the title of chief manager, he 
       strengthened his leadership role after the formation of 
       the Russian American Company in 1799. An adventuresome, 
       dynamic, and charismatic leader, he proved to be something
       of a commercial genius in Alaska, making huge profits for 
       company partners and shareholders in Irkutsk and St. 
       Petersburg while receiving scandalously little support 
       from the homeland. Baranov receives long overdue attention
       in Kenneth Owens's Empire Maker, the first scholarly 
       biography of Russian America's virtual imperial viceroy. 
       His eventful life included shipwrecks, battles with Native
       forces, clashes with rival traders and Russian Orthodox 
       missionaries, and an enduring marriage to a Kodiak Alutiiq
       woman with whom he had two children. In the process, the 
       book reveals maritime Alaska and northern California 
       during the Baranov era as fascinating cultural borderlands,
       where Russian, English, Spanish, and New England Yankee 
       traders and indigenous peoples formed complex commercial, 
       political, and domestic relationships that continue to 
       influence these regions today. --|cProvided by publisher.
