“To leaf through a Hayes atlas is a bit like a solitary ramble through a museum (the Victoria and Albert in London comes to mind) with no guard to check you as you rummage through the cupboards.”

From the Inside Flap

Praise for Derek Hayes’s previous atlases:

Historical Atlas of the American West:

“Shows knowledge expanding map by map; Native pueblos, early trails, railways, highways, parks and cities.”—Via

Historical Atlas of the North American Railroad:

“Sumptuously spilling over with period maps, posters, and images as well as impeccable historical data. Steel-wheels-heads of all gauges will find it enlightening and entertaining.”—American History

Historical Atlas of California:

“The Atlas is a record of ideas, of real places and enterprises, and of dreams, some of which never got beyond the drawing board…. [I]llustrations of what earlier Californians made of the promise of this place.”—Sacramento Bee

Historical Atlas of the United States:

"Derek Hayes works his way from the discovery and settlement of North America to the ever-evolving maps recording America's westward push and onward to the early maps of the automobile age."—William Grimes, New York Times

I've admired the volume and quality of Derek's work for several years. For some reason, the artistic quality of the choices and layout doesn't nearly match some of his better volumes (eg, Canada, USA, California, West, Railroads). I think the area deserves better, and I sincerely hope that Derek is not rushing things. Besides the quality, I feel that there is too much focus on two cities, Seattle and Portland, and comparatively little about the nature of settlement elsewhere. But it's still a respectable work, if not quite as enjoyable and useful as some of the others.

Do you also assume that there is a living, breathing Derek Hayes?

Format: Hardcover
It is difficult to describe all of the riches that Derek Hayes' latest atlas project offers to the armchair historian. Its 200+ pages brim with more than 500 maps, photos, newspaper clippings, pamphlets, illustrations, advertisements and other historical ephemera, all succinctly explained and consolidated in Hayes' descriptive yet succinct text. The journey begins with the earliest known maps of Washington and Oregon drawn up by explorers like Quadra, Barkley, Quimper, Gray and Vancouver - scrawled yet often elegant relics reflecting the limits of knowledge of the first Europeans venturing in to this rugged landscape - and gains sophistication as missionaries, railroad workers, miners, loggers and other settlers begin to push in to the territory. Later pages are devoted to the development of the interstate road system, national parks and forests, irrigation and hydropower, floating bridges and atomic and aerospace industries. Open to any page of Hayes' bursting compendium and you're likely to be engrossed by the diversity of materials and depth of research.

Granddaughter's eyes sparkled as she opened this gift which she had coveted. She graduated from an Oregon University after attending schools in Washington.
