This is an attractive and interesting map showing geologic formations in color all the way to the Rocky Mountains, here named Chippewayan Mountains, to the east of which is the Chippewayan Desert. Besides the geologic regions, there is quite a bit of information locating Indian tribes and naming waterways in the west. Several hypothetical rivers cross the great basin to the Pacific, holding out the hope of a river passage to the Pacific.
Original color with only a bit of light foxing. Issued folding, now pressed.
