    Tirion's Western Hemisphere map shows a great western river in North America, longer than the Mississippi, running from what is perhaps Lake Winnipeg to the Pacific. North of the river there is a tentative coastline, but the interior is blank. French Canada is squeezed between British Canada and the 13 Eastern Seaboard colonies. Several notes on borders and explorations are scattered throughout the map.
