California's Geographic Names: A Gazetteer of Historic & Modern Names of the State
The definitive gazetteer of California. This book lists more than 50,000 geographical features including topographical features such as ridges, peaks, canyons and valleys; water features such as streams, lakes, waterfalls and springs; and cultural features such as cities, towns, crossroads and railroad sidings.
Entries, divided into 11 multiple-county regions for ease of use, list general and specific locations for each feature as well as listing the United States government quadrangle map on which it appears. Many entries include information about who named the feature, when and why, as well as alternate or obsolete names. Each item of information is documented by citing the map, book or other source used.
Approximately 11,000 cross references provide easy access to secondary names, as well as to key words in multiword English-language names. The work contains bibliographic information for each of the thousands of references cited and is completely indexed.
This volume is useful to anyone interested in California history, geography or current events.
