This is the printed version of the 1855 manuscript map of the same title by George Belden that is held in the Library of Congress. It covers the region from the Wind River Mountains to the Pacific Ocean and shows lands held by Indians, lands ceded by Indians and the cessation dates, and good information concerning topography, rivers, trails, forts, and more. Despite the map's publication date of 1893, the information is only current to 1855, and the report states that it is a copy of Belden's map. Included with the map is the original full 58 page disbound report.
