Map Stories, a story of maps
The travel writer Francisca Mattéoli offers, with this book, an amazing geographical adventure through twenty stories about places that inspire her or have affected her during her journeys. Through beautiful maps from all sources and from all eras, the young woman takes us from the Wild West of the early settlers to the expedition in the South Pole by Roald Admundsen, through the discovery of Petra and Angkor. A fun, unexpected, curious book that offers us to track contours of the Earth imagining how was done – or undone – the world we know today. B.D.
