Series Mapping the world through primary documents
Note "Covering the adventures of coastal and ocean explorers who made key discoveries and landmark observations from northern California up the coastline to Alaska during the mid-1700s to the early 1800s, this anthology of primary source journal entries, book excerpts, maps, and drawings enables readers to "discover" the Northwest Coast for themselves. Provides interesting primary source documents that serve to guide students through the interpretation process. Supplies clear explanation and analysis of each document to promote critical understanding of the topics. Supports Common Core Standards relating to primary source analysis as well as National Geography Standards, including how to apply geography to interpret the past and understanding the processes, patterns, and functions of human settlement. Includes comprehensive biographies and background on each person of significance. Presents information on indigenous peoples of the area, including the Tlingit, Chinook, Haida, Tsimshian, Nuu-chah-nulth, and Gitxsan people"-- Provided by publisher
