First words
This is the third Discworld Map, and there can be no finer subject than Lancre (pronounced Lanker), the jewel of the Ramtops and centre of its flourishing witchcraft industry, as chronicles in Equal Rites, Wyrd Sisters, Lords and Ladies and Witches Abroad.

Book description
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0552146080, Paperback)

Between Uberwald and Whale Bay, the Octarine Grass Country and the Widdershins Ocean, lies the most exciting and dangerous terrain in all Discworld. This is a map of Lancre, where Granny Weatherwax, Nanny Ogg, and Magrat Garlick live.

(retrieved from Amazon Thu, 12 Mar 2015 18:23:06 -0400)

"Not only an artistic and breathtaking view of Lancre but also an interesting and informative guide to one of the Discworld's more, er, picturesque kingdoms. Granny Weatherwax, Nanny Ogg and Magrat Garlick live there. Lancre could hardly be somwhere ordinary, could it? Magic glues the Discworld together and a lot of it ends up in Lancre, principal Kingdom of the Ramtop Mountains. Between Uberwald and Whale Bay, the Octarine Grass Country and the Windersins Ocean lies the most exciting and dangerous terrain in all Discworld. The Ramtops supply Discworld with most of its witches and wizards. The leaves on the trees move even when there is no breeze. Rocks go for a stroll in the evening. Even the land, at times, seems alive. The mapp may be only two-dimensional, but watch it very carefully and you might just see it jostle about a bit."
