This colorful map features Nebraska with a long panhandle extending all the way to present-day Idaho. This really great map illustrates several wagon roads and names the Pony Express route. Numerous Indian tribes, forts and trading posts are located. County development in Kansas and Nebraska is limited to the eastern edge, with no counties at all in Colorado. Denver City is located on the banks of Cherry Fork with Auraria shown directly south of the city. Names the North, Middle, and South Parks, as well as several forts and a few towns in Colorado. Map is enclosed in lovely floral border.
