In this fascinating book, Susan Schulten tells the story of America in 100 maps.

Each map is accompanied by a description of its features and historical context. Most of the maps come from the British Library's collection and appear in full color. 272 pages. Hardbound in red cloth with an illustrated dust jacket.
Minor shelf wear to the dust jacket, otherwise like new.
