This map of the Americas shows the United States confined to east of the Mississippi River. Much of the rest of the country is shown under Spanish control. The area of Texas is labeled New Mexico and both Taos and Sante Fe are located. The Northwest is largely blank but two different possible River of the West locations are shown. In South America, there is good inland detail of the river system but two fictitious lakes, Parime and Xarayos, are identified.
