Spectacular book. It is large (12x18") with two-page spreads allowing illustrations of 22x18", a melange of historical photos and art together with NGS's splendid cartography, charts, drawings, and photos. 380 maps, 450 photos, and 140,000 words. Topics are: the land, people, boundaries, economy, transport and communication, and communities. The Atlas is NGS's centennial gift to the country; they have sent gift copies to 35,000 public and private schools teaching grade 9 and higher. This is one of the notable reference books of the year--and the decade. Annotation copyrighted by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
