About This Map
This map covers the area from Lake Superior in the northwest to western Quebec in the northeast, and from the Mississippi River in the southwest to Delaware Bay in the southeast. Shows a few towns, missions, forts, Indian villages and tribal territory, rivers and lakes, portages, and early place-names. Includes four legendary but non-existent islands in Lake Superior described by the Jesuit explorer Pierre de Charlevoix, thought to exist by explorers for many years.
