This book was very informative. I love the American Revolution, its my favorite subject in history and when I saw the cover of this and read the synopsis I was hooked and ordered it from my library. A great read this book is so full of information about the first and best president of our country the great George Washington. I loved it. Four stars for being great and informative.

Marvelous esoteric compendium of early American maps. As a young surveyor, Washington developed an innate skill as a mapmaker to a high degree.

Maps of the 18th Century are from a different planet.

Absolutely wonderful maps, decent walk through Washington's life but not a lot of new information. The maps are worth far more than the price of the book, though.
