The entire western part of the continent is left mostly blank on this map of North America. Indian tribes occupy the edges of defined territory -- Apaches, Sioux, Outagamis, and Assenipouels. The British Colonies and a few major cities are named along the eastern seaboard and in the Great Lakes region. Alaska is shown as a group of islands, the largest of which is labeled Alaschka. Information and place names fill Mexico and the Caribbean.
