This book discusses the making of maps as a means of getting to know one's locality and as a means of local empowerment. Various mapmaking applications are discussed, of varying degrees of sophistication, mostly in the contest of California and British Columbia. Locally made maps are important because they (1) acquaint the local people with their land and resources, and (2) they make it harder for outside agencies to exploit the local people unfairly.
