Interesting map of the Transmississippi West, with a large inset map of the California Gold Regions, published to illustrate the work of Samuel Bowles.

The map includes an early depiction of the proposed Transcontinental Railroad routes, early stagecoach and overland routes to the west, mail routes and a number of early forts.

Bowles' route through the west is illustrated with a dashed line and arrows.
