The Sea Runners

Based on an actual incident in 1853, The Sea Runners is a spare and awe-inspiring tale of the human quest for freedom. A truly inspiring read…

“Six weeks before, four men had crept from the fort at Sitka, Alaska, headquarters of the Russian-American fur-trading company. Having signed on from their native Sweden for seven years’ service at Sitka, the four chose to escape from their indenturement with the Russian frontier regime. All they knew of their chosen destination, the American fur-trading post at Astoria, was its direction, south along the wild coast of Alaska and British Columbia, and its means, an eighteen-foot Indian canoe they managed to steal.”
