The rapid rise in popularity of maps and geography handbooks in the eighteenth century ushered in a new geographic literacy among nonelite Americans and significantly influenced the formation of the American identity from the 1680s to the 1820s. Drawing on historical geography, cartography, literary history, and material culture, Bruckner recovers a vibrant culture of geography consisting of surveying materials, decorative wall maps and school geographies, the nation's first atlases, and sentimental objects such as needlework samplers.
