An attractive yet unusual regional map that shows early Colorado in some detail together with the northern plains states. Colorado’s Douglas County extends to the Kansas border and is marked as Gold Region. Colorado Springs is yet to be. The map shows the many Indian tribes and also their reservation area. Trails are shown as well. An excellent map of the West at the time of the Gold Rush there.
