Map Trek: World + U.S.A.
Hardcover Atlas + Outline Maps on CD-ROM
The Complete Collection of Historical Maps

Have you ever been teaching a history lesson when one of your children pipes up with a question. "Mom, is Carthage a city in Oregon or some other country?" Oh dear, you think to yourself and then calmly explain, "Honey, first of all, Oregon is a state, not a country. And Carthage no longer exists, but I think it was located on the northern tip of Africa across the Mediterranean Sea from Italy." After receiving two or more questions along this vein, you realize that you need some better resources.


Actually, you only need ONE!


Map Trek is a historical atlas plus outline maps that allow you to teach geography alongside history. This is a resource that any homeschool parent can use with brilliant success, even if you don't remember a thing from your history or geography classes in public school.

I just wanted to say THANK YOU for the Map Trek book. I LOVE it! It is beautiful!!!!! I cannot wait to use it this year with our history. I have never seen anything like it--YOU ARE AMAZING! Out of all the new books I bought this year, this is the one I am MOST excited about! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!!!

We have heard your comments throughout the years and have set out to provide THE most attractive and highly useful map book for home educators.  You have said that you want...

  1. Historical maps that will help you navigate through history studies. 
  2. Accurate maps that show what the world was like THEN and NOW. 
  3. Maps that are easily downloadable yet inexpensive to print. 
  4. Attractive maps that you and your children will be proud to display. 
  5. Lesson plans that will show you what to do with them each week. 

Map Trek meets all five of these demands and more.  Here's what the new Map Trek will provide you:

1. A full color teacher's answer map that will help you tremendously.  Here are a few samples below from the Modern World portion of the CD.  Go ahead and download this map that shows South Africa at the turn of the century.  Right click and choose "save image as" to save to your computer.

2. An unlabeled student map for your child to color in and label. Notice a few key features on this map. There is a slight color shading on the ocean/water areas to help your child determine which parts of the map are land and which are water. BUT the shading is minimal so as to not interfere with his creative coloring process OR to use much ink when printing from your printer (reproducible maps are located on the CD-ROM, which is PC and Mac compatible). Feel free to save a copy of this sample map to your computer and print one out to see for yourself. Right click and "save image as" to save to your computer.

3. Lesson Plans to help you know what to assign to each of your children at their various stages of learning. There are lesson plans included for all 350+ outline maps and are broken down into 3 levels - Level A (grades 1-4), Level B (grades 5-8) and Level C (grades 9-12).

Here is a Frequently Asked Question:

How is Map Trek different from your original Blackline Maps series?

Here is the answer:

Map Trek is basically the new and revised version of Blackline Maps. Here are some of the differences:

1. Map Trek has more maps - over 350 of them total in the book and on the CD-ROM. Blackline Maps of World History has 200.
2. There is more detail on the Map Trek maps, because they are intended for use up to 12th grade (Blackline Maps is for students 1-8).
3. Map Trek has lesson plans for students in grades 1-12, with 3 levels of difficulty.
4. Map Trek has full-color teacher answer maps; student maps are slightly shaded. Blackline Maps are black and white.

Here are two more maps for you to download to help you make your decision.
