Catalog # X45568

Billed as the classic historical reference atlas, this 12 inch x 16 inch chartbook has 117 pages of three color reproductions of U.S. and Canadian charts, inset with course lines and useful information.

Fascinating historical notes about Captain George Vancouver and many others. Includes ten pages of color aerial photos of ports and harbors. A great supplement to any cruising guide for this area. Before this classic historical atlas was republished in 1994, used copies of Stephen Hilson’s Evergreen Pacific Exploring Puget Sound & British Columbia sold for up to $150. This reissue of Hilson’s nautical atlas contains reproductions of government charts that are filled with historical anecdotes.

The charts cover Olympia, Washington, north on the east Inside Passage of Vancouver Island to Queen Charlotte Strait. Aerial photos enhance the historical charm of this book and its index of over 3,000 locations is extremely helpful.

Read about the shoot-out on Skagit Island with one of the members of Butch Cassidy’s Hole-in-the-Wall gang or about how some excellent fish weighing up to 200 lbs. each inspired Capt. Vancouver to name the coastline adjacent to the Fraser River. This is another Hilson atlas that will truly inspire dreams about voyages taken in the past and dreams of voyages to be made in the future. Keyword: 45568
