Covering five hundred years of history, it offers a compelling and informative look at the transformation of the state from the point of European contact through the Cold Rush and up to the present. The maps are accompanied by a concise, engaging narrative and by extended captions that elucidate the stories and personalities behind the maps' creation. At once a valuable reference and an exhilarating adventure through history, the Historical Atlas of California, featuring many rare and unusual maps."--BOOK JACKET."
