I bought this and had it sent to a good friend who puts me up for a day or two on my way to and from Florida. We were watching a story about Madagascar on TV and she said she didn't even know where it was and I said , "Get your atlas". She didn't have one. So when I got home, I ordered this atlas as a gift. She loves it and says the maps and pictures are gorgeous. She loves all the added information about the maps too. She and her husband fight over whose turn it is to read through it. I know they will have many years of use from this gift. You can't do better than National Geographic.Read More
