A unique biography of George Washington inspired by the maps he used throughout his life—offering new insight into the historic events of his era.

Beginning in his youth, the maps George Washington drew and purchased were always central to his work. After his death, many of the most important maps he had acquired were bound into an atlas, which eventually ended up at Yale University's Sterling Memorial Library.

Inspired by these remarkable maps, historian Barnet Schecter presents a unique portrait of our first Founding Father, placing the reader at the scenes of his early career as a surveyor, his dramatic exploits in the French and Indian War, his struggles throughout the American Revolution, his diplomacy as president, and his shaping of the new republic.

Beautifully illustrated in color, with twenty-four full atlas maps, numerous additional maps (some drawn by Washington himself), portraits, and other images–and produced in an elegant large format–George Washington's America allows readers to visualize history through Washington's eyes and sheds fresh light on the man and his times.
