Clan of the Cave Bear
Map of the area in Clan of the Cave Bear from the travels of Ayla of the Mamutoi in the book 'Clan of the Cave Bear' by Jean Auel.
There are several ways to print this image.
Here is the map as a pdf file.
This should allow the user to print the map as a single page on all computers and printers using the free Adobe Reader program.
Other programs and browsers may open the file, but it is best to use Adobe Reader to print it, since other programs tend to chop bits off.
Many people find that the above method is the best way to print the file. It should open in Adobe Reader, which is a free program that most people have, but if not you can get it at:
Another way to print this image is to copy it and paste into a drawing program such as Claris Works, Apple Works, MS Works, Adobe Illustrator, Corel Draw etc.
For Mac: click and hold on the map until you can choose 'copy this image' from the pop up menu.
For PC: Right click on the map and choose 'copy this image' from the pop up menu.
Then paste into a drawing program, and choose a percentage scale from the page set up menu to allow the entire page to fit on one sheet of paper. Try 50%, with sideways orientation for the page.
Another way to do the same thing perhaps more easily is to click on the 'open map in another window' link below. It opens a page which only contains the map. This should then allow you to more easily save the map (go to the file menu and 'save as source') so that you can open it later from a drawing program.

However I've found that not all drawing programs can open GIF images saved by Netscape for instance. (Aren't computers wonderful?)
So another method is that after saving it from Netscape, later on at your convenience open it again with Netscape (or Internet Explorer, whatever you saved it from) and print from your browser itself. Make sure you change the page setup to print sideways, and at say 50%.
I'd appreciate feedback on the success or otherwise of these instructions.
