Mapping America: Exploring the Continent is a handsomely illustrated survey of North America's cartographic landscape and part of Black Dog Publishing's award-winning mapping series.

Featuring an array of maps that chart the development of the continent, Mapping America explores a gamut of cartographic methods, from early engravings, to the latest satellite technology. It contains maps from four centuries, portraying the emotive story of North Americas progression, from colonial beginnings, through to the division of the states, and up to the current day. Mapping America is exquisitely presented, with hundreds of maps ranging from the historically accurate and informative, to the creative and entertaining.

The book presents the reader with a multi-faceted view of the North American physical and cultural landscape; from electoral routes to diminishing native communities, landmark events such as the Civil War, to more recent concerns, including the environment and terrorism. Beautifully presented, Mapping America is not just for cartography enthusiasts but anyone who enjoys the inherent adventure of maps.
