Read full description of the books:



An illustrated chapter on the renowned Michigan map expert Louis Karpinski opens this volume, following a comparative introduction by the noted cartographic historian David Buisseret. Twelve chapters tell particular stories. Often these narratives extend well beyond the limits of today's state of Michigan. Ameican Indian mapmakers sought to give directions and convey cosmological meanings and political relationships; only gradually did they adopt the geometric framing and uniformity of European maps, which reflected a different set of cultural attitudes. Would-be colonial governors mapped to promote their dreams. Boundary commissioners surveyed and mapped to settle contested claims and lay the foundations for peace along the U.S.-Canadian border. On the Canadian side, surveyors drew maps to build up the new British colony against American influences and encroachments. Mapmakers were also ambitious entrepreneurs, peddling illustrated county atlases to proud farm owners, bird's-eye views to show off towns, and plat and insurance maps to aid property development. 
     In describing how people produced and used maps, contributors tell a larger story of one region's peoples and cultures—and of a nation's zeal for exploration.

NATHAN

Rarely do the books make me cry, but this one could.

AUSTIN

Phone number you need to drive to protect against robots. I wrote the number and downloaded without registering.

SCARLETT

This is a very predictable author. When you get a book for free, you can read it. The intrigue is present, the unbundling is clear.

AVA

Another one-time book
