A colorful and fascinating map with great detail was issued just after the turn of the 20th century. The extent of nine Indian reservations and at least three Military reservations, including Camp Apache, are clearly shown in different colors. Numerous confirmed and unconfirmed land claims are named and located. A huge Grand Canyon Forest Reserve is shown. The brown hachured mountain area and the blue waterways combine to provide great visual impact. Information includes watershed, mountains, railroads, wagon roads, private claims, unsurveyed townships, etc. An interesting comparison to the next lot that was issued just two years after this map.
