Editorial Reviews

Review

"Whether your interest is cartography, social trends or a desire to learn more about our country's midsection, this glorious book is sure to captivate and educate."—Sandy Amazeen, Monsters and Critics
(Sandy Amazeen Monsters and Critics 2011-08-15)

"Recommended as a great value at a terrific price for most libraries; essential for all types of libraries where there is an interest in the history and geography of this region."—Diana Shonrock, Booklist
(Diana Shonrock Booklist 2011-12-01)

"This distinctive and handsomely produced atlas is highly recommended as an invaluable reference resource for public and academic libraries, and it will enthrall all those with a special interest in North America's heartland."—Edward K. Werner, Library Journal
(Edward K. Werner Library Journal)

"The Atlas of the Great Plains may well be one of the best scholarly atlases of a United States region ever produced. While the volume makes a much-needed scholarly contribution to research on the region, its layout, topics, map design, and text make the geographical diversity and geographical patterns of the Great Plains easily accessible to anyone who has an interest in this often-overlooked region of North America."—Robert Watrel, South Dakota History
(Robert Watrel South Dakota History)

"Every library in the plains region will of course need this title in its reference collection."—Mark T. Bay, American Reference Books
(Mark T. Bay American Reference Books)

This is an amazing and high quality book that seems to have every bit of information that would relate to geographical analysis. This book is equally at home on the coffee table or research library.
