Excellent detail from the Cascade Mountains west to the coast notes all towns and villages, roads, and railroads, with watershed and topography shown in bold hachure. The legend identifies Indian reservations, military reservations, railroad limits, land grants, and townships subdivided. The granted and indemnity limits of military wagon roads are illustrated. Lithography and printing by Julius Bien in New York City.
