about

Told in dazzling maps and informative sidebars, Manhattan explores the 400+ year history of Manhattan Island.
 
From before its earliest settlement to the vibrant metropolis that exists today, the island of Manhattan has always been a place of struggle, growth, and radical transformation. Humans, history, and natural events have shaped this tiny sliver of land for more than 400 years. In Manhattan, travel back in time to discover how a small rodent began an era of rapid change for the island. Learn about immigration, the slave trade, and the people who built New York City. See how a street plan projected the city’s future, and how epic fires and storms led to major feats of engineering above and below ground. Through dramatic illustrations, informative sidebars, and detailed maps inspired by historic archives, Manhattan explores the rich history that still draws people from all around the world to the island’s shores today. From The Battery downtown up to Inwood, every inch of the island has a story to tell.
 
Jennifer Thermes is a map illustrator and the author-illustrator of books for children, including Charles Darwin’s Around-the-World Adventure and Grandma Gatewood Hikes the Appalachian Trail. She lives in Connecticut.
