Marge’s maps alone set a new standard for guidebooks. At the time, it was common practice to use chunks of USGS topo maps, which—while definitely accurate—gave the average hiker little or no impression of the ‘flavor’ of the trip. Her unique ‘oblique angle’ style conveyed both terrain relief and relative distances in a way that was often copied (but never successfully!) by other publishers.
Marge’s ability to wrangle both Fred [Becky] and Harvey [Manning]’s work into orderly submissions fit for publication was not only legendary, it was essential. Both men eventually refused to publish without her at the helm of production for their books.
