Concise Place Names of Alberta
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Toponymy, the study of place names, can provide a wealth of interesting information about a particular region. This new abridged volume of Alberta place names includes entries for a select number (about a quarter) of officially named cultural and geographical features in the province. The entries are arranged alphabetically for easy reference and include all incorporated bodies such as cities, towns, villages, summer villages, and rural municipalities; mountains over 3,000 metres; and rivers and major lakes. Information on the background of geographical naming in Canada and Alberta is also included. Illustrated with black and white photographs, Concise Place Names of Alberta is an excellent reference for those who wish to learn about the history and geography of Alberta through its place names.
