Publisher's Summary

Writer Simon Winchester on this edition of Fresh Air>. He wrote the best seller The Professor and the Madman. His new book is The Map That Changed the World about William Smith, an obscure British 19th century engineer obsessed with creating the first geological map. His map, hand-painted in 1815, paved the way for modern geology, but Smith was swindled out of the recognition and profits due him until a nobleman intervened. (Broadcast Date: August 7, 2001)
