Lots of news. We received a number of reviews when I was out of the country recently. Dorothy Drummond's book Holy Land Whose Land was reviewed by AP and went national in July. Congratulations Dorothy.
Rodney Broome's book Terra Incognita had been reviewed earlier by AP and we missed it. Sorry Rodney.
Kieran's book Geography and Education was reviewed in Journal of Geography by Joseph Kerski of the USGS.
Finally, the Waldseemuller Map went on display at the Library of Congress and we are delighted to see it receiving the accolades it deserves. Many visitors to our site have enquired how to purchase a copy of the poster. Troy assures me that he will have a sell sheet up soon to make the process simpler. Meanwhile, simply email your request to email@example.com and we will contact you.
September is going to be a busy month. The highlight will be in Erie PA where the Geographical Society awards are being handed down to this years winners. Congratulations are extended to Harm deBlij who was awarded Geographer of the Year and to Kieran who received the Distinguised Scholar award.
