Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This authoritative and beautiful volume offers a detailed look at the history, geography, and people of Oregon. More than 700 new maps are complemented by informative text exploring everything from the earliest settlers to the rise of Oregon vineyards to Portland's traffic jams.

Newly updated by an award-winning team of geographers and map makers, it is both a work of art and a fascinating reference. The perfect gift for everyone who loves Oregon.

Book News Annotation:

The first edition, a quarter century ago, immediately became the standard to which all state atlases (vainly) aspired. The second edition raises the bar—particularly the exquisite computer assisted shaded relief maps by Stuart Allan. Maps, charts, and text present detailed information about the history, geography, and people of Oregon, with coverage of early settlers, native cultures, exploration, politics, religion, economic growth, landforms, volcanoes, lakes, place names, vegetation and wildlife habitat, among other topics. Oversize: 10x13<">.

This book is noted on the blog of Edward Tufte, the guru of information presentation, as "one of the finest examples of information design that I have ever seen in print". Tufte himself says "Anyone interested in the state of the art in information design should buy this book."
