This large, handsome map of North America provides considerably more detail than most continental maps, including state and territory boundaries, towns, roads, forts, Indian tribes, railroads, and sea lanes. The western United States is comprised of the state of California and the large territories of Oregon, Utah and New Mexico, while the plains region is occupied by Northwest, Minnesota, and Indian territories. A large inset map details Alaska and the Aleutian Islands. A key at lower left identifies the European possessions in the Caribbean.
Contemporary color on a bright sheet with a few insignificant spots.
