This pictorial map of the entire western states is nicely illustrated with vignettes of historical events, locations and other details that are clear and fairly accurate. Andy Dagosta (1923-2009) was a well known illustrator and western realist painter. He was one of the founders of the American Indian and Cowboy Artist Association (now the Cowboy Artists of America) and had a long career. This is one of several illustrations published in the late 1960's. This one in 1968 was followed by a smaller version of California in 1969.
