Unfathomable City

A New Orleans Atlas

A brilliant reinvention of the traditional atlas, this features more than 20 essays from geographers, scholars of sugar and bananas, the city's remarkable musicians, prison activists, environmentalists, Arab and Native voices and local voices, as well as the co-authors' compelling contributions. Also features 22 full colour maps - providing travellers with everything they need to visit and understand the city.

Rebecca Solnit is the author of many books, including Savage Dreams, Storming the Gates of Paradise, and Infinite City: A San Francisco Atlas, all from UC Press. Rebecca Snedeker is an Emmy Award-winning independent filmmaker and New Orleans resident.

William McNulty, cartographer, former director of maps at National Geographic, former graphics editor, New York Times
