Contained within a portfolio jacket (12"x16") the present atlas contains 88 of Joseph Nicolas Nicollet's field maps. The maps chart the course of Nicollet's 1939 expedition from St. Louis up the Missouri River then an overland trek to the upper reaches of the Mississippi River basin. These detailed maps show major geographical features of the Missouri valley and upper Midwest. This is an important addition to aid us in understanding the changes brought to the river, the land, and the people during this important period of growth and settlement.
