English maps on Razin and Pugachev revolts

Dear colleagues,

Did anyone of you encounter an English map or scheme dealing with the revolts of Razin or Pugachev in 17 and 18 centiries? Maybe in any kind of handbooks or atlases on Russian history? I am familiar with only Russian maps, and a search using the Google-search engine did not reveal any results.

I would be very thankful for any tips!
