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<">.
