About the Pictures and Maps

The only problem I had with how my book was handled had to do with the pictures & maps. They were changed from color to black-and-white, taken off the pages where I put them, and stuck in the back of the book without the text I wrote to describe them. Thus, most of my readers will have trouble telling what they are looking at, especially with the maps. Of course I'll have that corrected in future editions. In the meantime, here you can see the pictures and maps individually, or go to the links at the bottom of this page to see them together.
