This beautiful and authoritative volume offers a detailed look at the history, geography, and people of Oregon. Stunning full-color maps are complemented by informative text exploring everything from the earliest settlers to the growth of Oregon vineyards to Portland's traffic jams.

The Atlas maps a world of information, from native cultures, exploration, politics, religion, and economic growth to landforms, volcanoes, lakes, place names, vegetation, and wildlife habitat. Created by an award-winning team of geographers and cartographers, it is both a work of art and a fascinating reference.

  • Comprehensive reference maps detailing every square mile of the state
