Alexandersmap

Observations from living and traveling, primarily in New England, New York and Atlantic Canada.

About

Alexander’s Map was created in 1625 both to show people where to go in the New World and as a marketing tool for drawing people to settle there (as part of William Alexander’s pamphlet Encouragement to Colonies).  It was the first map to reference Cape Cod, New Scotland, Prince Edward Island and Quebec (“Kebec”).  I use the name because I’m fascinated with the history in the Northeast, and focus appropriately on New England, New York and Eastern Canada for that reason.  But Alexander’s Map was also a call to action – go forth and see new places – and that’s what I aim to do and share in this blog.  I also write about other interests, from stoicism to building better habits to gardening.  I hope you enjoy the journey.
