This interesting and uncommon map of North America lists and locates the various native people throughout the continent. 38 different tribal groups are listed, 34 of which are color-coded on the map. An inset identifies the distribution of the European and African languages. Berghaus’ Physical Atlas was the first truly comprehensive thematic atlas and a monumental work in the history of thematic cartography.
