"(T)ells the story of the maps that made Canada and that, in turn, have made us Canadian. (Morantz) examines how the inhabitants o f this land have used maps for their own purposes - some laudable, some creative and some despicable. And he shows us how maps - made by Inuit hunters, hobos, explorers, missionaries, adventurers, marketers and artists - are often windows on our world views, our assumptions and our dreams. They mirror the best and worst in human nature. They tell the story of Canada." Very minor edge wear to boards. Dust jacket is bright and clean. NF/F
