An interesting and detailed map of all North America from the Gulf to the Arctic. The map combines physical features, rivers and mountain chains with the names of indigenous Indian tribes, naming States but not defining their borders and including Wagon train routes and so on. The projection allows for great detail to be shown in the Arctic regions. With attractive light colour, the map has a distinctive engraved piano-key border. Trimmed close with protective extended margins at each side.
