This regional bestseller is a one-of-a-kind collection of maps created by navigators, explorers, and cartographers who first charted the Northwest. The Historical Atlas of the Pacific Northwest showcases more than 320 original maps, many never before published. Here are the maps of explorers such as Cook, Vancouver, Bodega y Quadra, Mackenzie, Thompson, and Lewis and Clark. Representing four centuries of discovery and exploration, this unique reference book is a must-have for anyone interested in Northwest history.
