From the Inside Flap:
Responding to the need for an updated geographical reference work for Arkansas, Dr. Tom Paradise of the University of Arkansas in Fayetteville put his cartography skills to work and created a comprehensive tour of the state using colorful maps, diagrams and photos. Just published by Butler Center Books, Arkansas: An Illustrated Atlas is an innovative and comprehensive look at the unique Natural State. The atlas uses graphics, fun "Did You Know?" fact boxes and up-to-date statistics to explain, describe and discover the state. Designed for middle school through adult audiences, this atlas will become the must-have book for every Arkansan's library.
"Arkansas hasn't had a comprehensive geography book written in decades, so as a geographer and professor, I thought it was about time," explained Paradise. Paradise says that his office is barraged with requests for maps and information about the state from individuals, agencies and schools. "Basically, we created a 'think tank' of geographic specialists who were then able to contact various specialists for all of the sections in the book," Paradise said. The atlas covers such topics as geology, population, politics, history, and also features reference maps. Paradise, who was trained in the earth sciences and in cartography, has written, designed and produced three previous atlases.
