Stepan Petrovich Krasheninnikov is known as a famous Russian traveller and explorer of Siberia and Kamchatka. S. Krasheninnikov was born in a poor family on 31 October, 1711 in Moscow. His father was a soldier. At the age of 13, Stepan became a pupil of Moscow Ecclesiastical Academy and worked hard throughout his schooling. He learnt Latin and Greek very well and got a good education. In 1732 S. Krasheninnikov was sent to the Academy of Science in Petersburg.

In the summer 1737, Krasheninnikov went to Okhotsk and then to Kamchatka. He sailed by a small boat “Fortuna” to the western shore of Kamchatka. But during a terrible storm the boat was crashed. Native people helped him and his assistants to get to the central settlement of the peninsula - Bolsheretsk. S. Krasheninnikov developed his talent while studying flora and fauna of Kamchatka. He was interested in the life and traditions of native people. In September 1740 he joined Vitus Bering`s expedition to North America under Georg Steller command. After that S. Krasheninnikov together with G. Steller explored Kamchatka again. Only 10 years later, in February 1743 Stepan Krasheninnikov came back to Petersburg and began writing a book about his travelling to Kamchatka.

During his work in the Academy Krasheninnikov made friends with M. Lomonosov – a world-known Russian scientist. In 1752 his great work “The Description of Kamchatka Land” was ready for printing. Unfortunately, Stepan Petrovich Krasheninnikov died on 25 February, 1755 and couldn’t see his book which was published only in 1756. “The Description of Kamchatka Land” was translated into German, English, French, Dutch and became the only work about Kamchatka known in Europe.
