"I got mine today! I love them! I love
the convenience! My son loves them! Why didn't I order these earlier instead of spending hours
scouring the internet for maps that didn't quite work?" - Sharon
It is a proven fact that using historical outline maps help cement historical and geographical
facts for students and adults alike. Just knowing that Alexander the Great conquered the whole
known world is simply not enough. Seeing this enormous ancient empire on paper gives visual and
non-visual students an edge in their learning.
The truth is... most educators know this, but struggle to find the printable maps they are looking
for. Now your search is over. Finally, Blackline Maps of World History is now available in a
beautiful hardcover book with bonus CD-ROM for easy printing.
"Can I just say thank you so much for the wonderful resources you have

"I purchased the Knowledge Quest maps
for this time period and they have been a terrific addition! All three kids (11,9,6) have learned a
great deal." - Beth
You may be wondering if you can find most of these printable maps for free online? The truth is,
quite frankly, that you will not. I used to spend countless hours scouring the Internet for the
appropriate map for our history lesson. Sometimes BINGO I would find just what I was looking for.
But more often than not, there would be something about the map that I wished I could change. Maybe
we were studying the United Kingdoms of Italy and the boundaries of the territories were not there.
Or maybe we were studying South America during the times of the Spanish conquistadors and the only
maps I could find had current political boundaries or no boundaries at all.
I began producing these printable maps in 2001 for Susan Wise Bauer's Story of the World series.
Since then, we have greatly improved the quality of the maps using vector graphics. These new
upgraded computer generated maps are cleaner, clearer and easier to use than the original ones.
"I just wanted to drop you a line
and let you know how WONDERFUL your maps are! I just love to use maps in school; it makes
everything so clear. And your maps are perfect for each unit we study. It's great to have a
resource like this instead of having to paw through numerous books to find maps and then have to
shrink them or enlarge them to suit the need! I have recommended your maps to many people." -
