An essential gear item for every outdoorsman! These ultimate trip planners detail everything from the major highways to minor gravel roads. Special grids facilitate navigation with Global Positioning System. Shaded relief has been added to give the terrain an almost 3-D effect. Each state is broken down into a series of color topographic maps of incredible detail. All lakes and rivers are shown, including boat ramps, access roads, etc. The Gazetteer sections include information about special points of interest including: parks, paddle-bike-and-hiking trips, campgrounds, hunting and fishing areas, special events, museums, historic sites and more. All maps are 11x15.5 inches.
"And for the angler or outdoorsman, nothing gives you the information you need more quickly, completely or accurately than a DeLorme Mapping Co. State Atlas & Gazetteer™." —Fly Rod & Reel, February 1999
"And if you can afford only one book this year, make it a DeLorme Atlas & Gazetteer™, $16.95. They’re indispensable, containing not only the most detailed road maps available but also summaries on parks, forests, geological features, bicycling and hiking trails, campgrounds, canoe routes, wildlife sites, factory tours, historic sites, art museums, boat trips, hunting areas, scenic drives and fishing spots. Don’t leave home without it." —St. Paul Pioneer Press, November 29, 1998
"For more details than you can ever use in one lifetime, the DeLorme series of Atlas & Gazetteer™ map books are absolutely the best thing going. They combine the detail of a U.S. Geological Survey topographic map with the convenient packaging of a conventional road atlas. Each DeLorme book covers one state, and most states are now available, with more in the works." —San Francisco Chronicle, July 24, 1998
