In this map, Uncle Sam stands atop a platform shining his searchlight down the Kansas City, Pittsburg, and Gulf Railroad referred to in shorthand here as "The Port Arthur Route". A didactic in the lower righthand corner explains that while Uncle Sam was looking for the Schomburgk like in Venezuela, he discovered the (literal) fruits of his own domain, namely the "The Promised Land" region of North America between the blizzards of the north and the swampy heat of the south. This land is reportedly mild, pleasant, and fertile with world-class apple orchards shown lining the railway route.
