A colorful map with great detail of railroads, cities, roads, extent of surveying, etc, thirteen years before statehood. A legend upper left provides a key to color coding for topography, Indian Reservations, Military Reservations, and Forest Reserves. Several private land claims, confirmed and unconfirmed, are also shown through color coding. Much of the territory remains to be surveyed and townships subdivided. Terrific detail throughout.
