Boundaries Of Home: Mapping For Local Empowerment

Edited by Doug Aberley

Fifteen contributors to Boundaries of Home introduce a wide range of home-grown, creative maps that show more than roads and political boundaries. Using overlays, tapestries and stories, communities are mapping what's crucial to them: water and air flow, community patterns, distribution of species, and local history.
