Publisher Comments:

Praise for Derek Hayess previous atlases:

Historical Atlas of the American West:

“Shows knowledge expanding map by map; Native pueblos, early trails, railways, highways, parks and cities.”—Via

Historical Atlas of the North American Railroad:

“Sumptuously spilling over with period maps, posters, and images as well as impeccable historical data. Steel-wheels-heads of all gauges will find it enlightening and entertaining.”—American History

Historical Atlas of California:

“The Atlas is a record of ideas, of real places and enterprises, and of dreams, some of which never got beyond the drawing board…. [I]llustrations of what earlier Californians made of the promise of this place.”—Sacramento Bee

Historical Atlas of the United States:

"Derek Hayes works his way from the discovery and settlement of North America to the ever-evolving maps recording America's westward push and onward to the early maps of the automobile age."—William Grimes, New York Times

Synopsis:

This gorgeous atlas, illustrated throughout with more than 500 colorful images and maps, provides a visually rich and textually engaging history of the states of Oregon and Washington. Derek Hayes brings his enthusiasm and expertise to a full range of topics, beginning with the first inhabitants and tracing the westward expansion, conflict between settlers and Native Americans, and the establishment of the Oregon Trail. We see in vivid images, old maps, and lively text the coming of the railroads and the rapid establishment of the coastal ports, northwest cities and roads, the fur and lumber industries, and the large farms. We also witness the twentieth-century development of the war industries, the establishment of the aviation industry, and the celebratory 1962 Seattle Worlds Fair. At once a valuable reference and an exhilarating adventure through history, the Historical Atlas of Washington and Oregon presents readers with a fascinating chronicle of how these proud states came into their own and how they each look toward the future.
