One little map for each continent shows the most northern, southern, eastern and western points of each continent, for both those who define a continent as a large land mass and those who use a cultural definition; for instance the Galapagos Islands are identified as the most westerly point of South America though the islands are not affixed to the mainland or even the same tectonic plate. I was always taught that a continent is a large land mass, so I don't know where that other point of view comes from, perhaps it is a more economic point of view. Hawaii does not appear as the most westerly point on North America.
This is a midrange atlas, being half the price of Dorling Kinderley's 492-page Great World Atlas. Larger, more expensive atlases illustrate the world in greater detail and on more pages. This book is a pleasure to read and study.
