(p.42) Chapter Four Early Settlers: The Free and the Unfree

Janet M. Hartley

Yale University Press

This chapter considers the early settlers who came to Siberia in the seventeenth century and their reasons for doing so. Cossacks and hunters were the first ones to arrive in Siberia from European Russia. They were soon followed by other soldiers and officials as the Russian government tried to establish at least a tenuous presence in this vast region. Peasants soon outnumbered other groups of settlers during the seventeenth century.
