The Cambridge Gazetteer of the USA and Canada
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


The Cambridge Gazetteer of the United States and Canada is a comprehensive, one-volume, alphabetically arranged encyclopedic dictionary of places. It contains over 12,000 entries based on the latest census data and on a wide range of economic, cultural, historic, and topographical sources. The Gazetteer's coverage is unique in that it extends beyond the basic survey of towns, cities, and rivers; it includes coverage of urban neighborhoods; suburban and rural communities; lakes, rivers, ocean areas, mountains, forests, swamps, parks, preserves, and other regions of contemporary interest or past significance including Revolutionary and Civil War sites; roads and routes; important industrial, military, and cultural locales; historic sites; and even renowned folkloric and fictional places. Thus, it is not only a basic reference tool--including entries for every place having a population over 10,000--but actually a pleasure to read.
