    Through the medium of cartography, this handsomely produced book traces the transformation of the USA from colonial backwater to global superpower. In five thematic chapters, more than 120 superbly reproduced historical maps chart the formation of states, the development of the transport network, industry and agriculture, and describe the country's flora and fauna. A final section, 'Imagining the Continent', includes a map celebrating the nation's black writers, a DC Comics map, and Jack Kerouac's sketch of his 1947 hitch-hiking trip.
