Review

"Appealing to cartographers, historians and art-enthusiasts, Mapping America exposes a unique view of American past, present and future." City Arts NYC

"The sheer range and diversity of the maps contained in this book make summing it up an impossible task. The selection resembles the colourful, sometimes strange and contradictory melting pot of today's America […] will appeal to map addicts and general readers alike." The Geographical Journal

5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Midwest Book Review on February 13, 2011
Format: Hardcover
Mapping America: Exploring the Continent traces the formation of the U.S. from its colonial roots through changing country and state borders to its present state, blending history and geography in a finely illustrated survey that includes not just human movements and settlements, but flora, fauna, and geology as well. Color photos and illustrations abound in a reference especially recommended for high school to college-level geography and history holdings.

Got this as a gift for my boyfriend, who loves maps. He thought it was awesome. It's really just a giant coffee table book, but it's a lot of fun to look through.
