Publisher Comments:

Navigate the Star Wars universe as you never have before-with this fully illustrated, full-color guide that maps the entire galaxy.

You know the planets — from Alderaan and Corellia to Tatooine and Zonama Sekot — and the star systems, from the Deep Core to the Outer Rim. But now, for the first time, you can pinpoint their locations and chart the travels of your favorite characters through the vast reaches of space.

Star Wars: The Essential Atlas is a galaxy-spanning trove of vital statistics and information ranging from the astronomical and geographical (Systems, Sectors, Oversectors, and Regions) to the historical and political (The Sith Empire and The Great Hyperspace War). Encompassing the entire Star Wars canon, including all the films, and the Clone Wars television series, plus the novels, comic books, video games, and more, this volume is packed with dozens of detailed maps and charts, as well as pertinent data and accompanying facts on:

    The Empire: its length and breadth, political regions, populations, trade routes, major attractions, and trouble spots
  • The Clone Wars: the trajectory of this decisive conflict across the universe, data on key battles and major Loyalist and Separatist worlds
  • The adventures of Han Solo: the heroic rogue's exploits throughout the galaxy-including his captaincy of the Millennium Falcon and his first, fateful meeting with Chewbacca-before his life-changing alliance with Luke Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi
  • The Sith Wars: the progression of the universal clash between the ancient Jedi Order, their dark side counterparts, and the Mandalorian warriors who fought against both orders...

and much, much more!

From Hutt Space to the Unknown Regions, from the Knights of the Old Republic and Episode I to the Fate of the Jedi and Legacy era, Star Wars: The Essential Atlas is the ultimate gateway to space fantasy's most brilliantly imagined and endlessly intriguing galaxy.

Synopsis:

The first book entirely devoted to mapping out all the corners of the "Star Wars" galaxy is a chance for fans to finally trace the travels of all their favorite "Star Wars" characters.

This is an amazing compilation of several planets and systems in the Star Wars galaxy. I wanted to get this for my husband ever since it came out, but could not find it anywhere in New Mexico! Now we can both geek out over all the galactic or system maps included. If you love Star Wars and atlases (or maps), I highly recommend this book. It may not include absolute everything, but it does an excellent job of highlighting most of the Star Wars galaxy. You can seriously lose yourself in this book for days...
