Description:
New book, 312 pages. In 1785, the American Congress authorised the survey and sale os the land west of the Ohio River. In what proved to be the greatest property deal of all time, the US government eventually measured out and sold over a billion acres, stretching from Canada to Mexico. The grid the survey imposed upon the unmapped land determined the configuration of states, counties, farms and towns. Not only was the American landscape shaped for ever, so was the American psyche.
