This map is a fantastic showcase of the natural diversity available in the United States, with detailed illustrations of sixty-eight different species of birds and fifty-five illustrations of various mammals, including big game, predators, and rodents. Skillful color shading alludes to the various ecosystems in which these animals thrive, from the swampy wetlands of Florida to the arid deserts of Nevada. Numerous inset maps around the border show the nesting and wintering areas of various species, and National Forests are represented by symbols of pine trees throughout the image (and also listed in the text box in the lower-left).
The map was originally designed in 1956 by Ira Moss, but the copyright was purchased by Sherwood Reproductions. They published this example in 1972 to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the National Rifle Association.
