Abstract: 
"In Beatriz Badikian's Mapmaker we are witness to the cartographer's presence as much as we are to the maps themselves - maps made of words, images, lines of exile, travel, love and longing, loss and celebration. As we move from poem to poem, reading, there is increasingly apparent the growth and consistency of a voice, a poetic speech that is quite recognizable the author's own. Fluent in two languages, Beatriz Badikian is touching in her quiet accomplishment, her lyrical strength." -- Ralph J. Mills, Jr.

Abstract: 
This new, completely revised and updated edition of a major unit of the famous American Guide Series provides a comprehensive survey of the great industrial, economic, and social changes that are sweeping the Land of Lincoln, a state that cherishes the memorials of its past and lives by the technology of the nuclear age. Here are recorded how a great railroad empire the largest air center of the Mid-continent; how a state that leads in the production of soybeans built the world's tallest skyscraper. In Illinois democratic energy finds its most typically American expression. [from flap copy]
