The Red and Arkansas Rivers, two of the Mississippi’s larger tributaries, run largely parallel to each other and so, conveniently for me, can be fit easily into one map spread as part of my ongoing attempt to generate an atlas of North American rivers. The settlements get a little crowded in Oklahoma, so I’ve had to stretch that state out quite a bit (and, consequently, squish a few other places). But distortions are part of the fun of cartograms.
