Overview

This fascinating book, illustrated with a chronological sequence of over forty maps, tells the story of North America - paying particular attention to the United States. Beginning with the first apearance of man, The Penguin Atlas of North American History traces the effects of colonization, revolution, and civil war on populations, boundaries, and political interests up until 1870. An absorbing epilogue carries readers up to the present. Colin McEvedy's analysis of these effects provides a concise account of the development of North America and the United States, while the maps make it easy to see how much - or how little - things have changed.
