Midwest Muslims


I was asked to create a pair of maps for a new book from celebrated author Edward E. Curtis IV, titled Muslims of the Heartland: How Syrian Immigrants Made a Home in the American West. The book tells the story of how the first two generations of Syrian Muslim Midwesterners created a life that was Arab, Muslim, and American, all at the same time. It also shows what the land — its fields, creeks, and lakes — meant to their lives. This colorful map features illustrations and locations that are central to the stories in the book.

UPDATE: NYUPress chose to use my map on the cover of the book. It can be ordered here.
