Summary
Presents a collection of original maps and historic illustrations to document the exploration of North America. Map researcher Derek Hayes applies his signature approach to a collection of maps that trace the discovery, exploration, and settlement of North America from 1000 A.D. to the present. Rich narratives make over 300 beautiful maps come alive, with North America's coasts, waterways, prairies, and peaks freshly described by explorers such as Columbus, Coronado, and Lewis and Clark as they encounter these territories for the first time. A final spread discusses modern scientific exploration and includes a detailed catalog and index of the maps
