Abrams Books (abramsbooks) | 20 comments Hi there,

The title for Jennifer Thermes's "Manhattan: The Story of an Island" has been updated to be "Manhattan: Mapping the Story of an Island". Is there any way you could update the book's page to reflect that?

The updated description should also be:
An innovative look back through time, Manhattan Maps follows the history of Manhattan Island from its natural formation to the bustling city it is today. It explores the ways in which nature and people are connected, tracking the people who lived on Manhattan from the Lenape Indians, to Dutch settlers hunting for beaver pelts, to early Americans and beyond, and how they’ve (literally) shaped the island (and vice versa). Jen Thermes’s highlights watershed moments where nature demanded action of New Yorkers—the Great Fire of 1835, the Great Blizzard of 1888, and Hurricane Sandy in 2012. In special sidebars, she closely traces specific threads of history and their lasting impact today—New York as a hub for immigration and the slave trade, for example. An epic volume that chronicles the rise of Manhattan through the lenses of geography, city planning, sociology, historiography, and more, Manhattan Maps is a groundbreaking format that will fascinate curious readers of all ages.

Here's a link to the current Goodreads page that needs editing:

Additionally, there appears to be a second page for this same book. Found here:

Is there any way to combine the two?

Thanks so much for your help!
