A surprising tale of the struggle for survival, The Navigator's Wife is the fictionalized true story of the 1808 shipwreck of the Russian fur trade explorer ship Sv. Nickolai, aground off the isolated coast of the Olympic Peninsula, and the capture of its entire crew including the young wife of the navigator, Anna Petrovna Bulygin, by Makah native people. Anna's struggle to survive in alien and harsh circumstances, the choices she makes, and the insistence with which she masters her environment make her a heroine for all time. Galer's vivid prose has been compared to Joseph Conrad or Jack London. Fleshing the skeleton of the scant factual information, this true event combines adventure, little known history, and a cross cultural love story. "A wonderful literary adventure." Ken Owens, author of The Wreck of the Sv. Nicolai.
