The Dynamic Earth wall map illustrates plate tectonics and features new bathymetry and naturally colored relief, as well as volcano and earthquake data through 2011. Like pieces of a giant jigsaw puzzle, tectonic plates fit together to form the earth's outer shell. The interaction of these plates causes earthquakes and volcanoes and shapes the earth's crust into mountains, valleys and deep-sea trenches. The Dynamic Earth map illustrates 17 major tectonic plates and highlights diffuse plate boundaries, convergent boundaries, spreading boundaries, fault zones, hot spots, notable earthquakes and volcanic eruptions of the 20th and 21st centuries, earthquakes with a magnitude of greater than 6.5 during the 20th and early 21st centuries, and notable volcanic eruptions during the past 10,000 years."Map Scale = 1:45,500,000Sheet Size = 36" x 24""

National Geographic's new Railroad Legacy Map of the United States illustrates the many ways railroads have impacted the nation and shaped people's daily lives. From the creation of time zones still used today to the contributions to the country's economic and industrial development, America's railroad legacy is interwoven with the growth of the United States in the 19th and 20th centuries and of the century to come. The map portrays the routes of today's seven Class 1 (major) railroads, Amtrak's passenger routes, as well as those of the more than one hundred Class 1 railroads that ran in 1920 when five percent of the nation's work force more than 2 million people were employed by these lines. The map also highlights present-day and 1920 rail hubs along with text and illustrations of key events in America's railroad history such as the opening of New York City's Grand Central Terminal in 1913 and the last Class I line to employ steam locomotives in 1960. Notable sites such as tunnels, train spotting locations, and railroad museums are also included on this map. The map is printed on high-quality paper, and measures 24"x36" suitable for framing."Map Scale = 1:6,040,000Sheet Size = 36" x 24"""

This is the definitive guide on how to prepare for any crisis, from global financial collapse to a flu pandemic. It would only take one unthinkable event to disrupt our way of life. If there is a terrorist attack, a flu pandemic, or sharp currency devaluation, you may be forced to fend for yourself in ways you've never imagined. Where would you get water? How would you communicate with relatives? What would you use for fuel? Survivalist expert James Wesley, Rawles, editor of SurvivalBlog.com and a former US Army Intelligence officer, shares the essential tools and skills you will need for your family to survive, including how to find and build a retreat, store food, supply power, rear animals, administer medicine, barter, and defend your family. 'Save those wine corks. Burned cork makes quick and cheap face camouflage.' 'Store only foods with minimal spices. When you are surrounded by starving people, just heating up a can of spicy chili con carne could be a death warrant.' 'If you are on a budget, you might get away with a good-quality bolt-action rifle...'
