Yermak was thus compelled to fly, and sought refuge in the north, on the banks of the Kama, where the family of Strogonoff had a factory for the purpose of barter with the Siberians.

The first campaign was in the summer of 1578. Yermak had from six to seven thousand men with him; but through his ignorance of the route, and want of guides, winter closed in upon him almost before the commencement of the campaign. His route lay along the Kama to the entrance of the river Silvar, where he p...
