The southwestern border between Texas and Mexico follows the Nueces River which was later extended to the Rio Grande. Locates numerous Indian regions including the Whaco in Texas, Moqui, Navaho, several Apache tribes including the Mescalaros in Chihuahua in Mexico, and many more. In Texas the settlements of San Felipe, Matamoras, Brazaria and Victoria are located. An important map for any collection of Texas material.
