This regional bestseller is a one-of-a-kind collection of maps created by navigators, explorers, and cartographers who first charted the Northwest.

I don't find this atlas particularly useful. It is a collection of historical maps, rather than a historical atlas showing any particular historical insights into the Pacific Northwest. There are no thematic maps, or any original maps of any kind. Not helpful.
