The "Atlas of Boston History," featuring Dane Morrison's chapter "Europeans Arrive in Massachusetts Bay, 1500s–1630," received the 2020 Historic New England Book Prize.  

The book traces the city’s history and geography from the last ice age to the present with fifty-seven beautifully rendered maps. Thirty-five experts in a variety of fields contributed to the publication. From ancient glaciers to landmaking schemes and modern infrastructure projects, the city has been transformed almost constantly over the centuries. The Atlas of Boston History explores the history of the city through its physical, economic, and demographic changes and social and cultural developments.
