A fine map for watching the growth and settlement of the state. In the eastern third of the state, railroads make a dense web covering every county, with small towns and settlements abounding. Details the rivers and tributaries with amazing detail, and is hand colored to identify each county. Only two railroad lines make it to the Colorado border, and as they do, they steam past counties that are mostly uninhabited. For instance, Dodge City, at the time sat in a county with only four other towns, and Garden City in neighboring Finney County is practically twice the size and only contains five named settlements. A large and attractive map.
