Samenvatting

An alphabetical reference to the origins of names for more than 2,000 Wisconsin communities, counties, and towns. Entertaining and impeccably researched.

Recensie(s)

Up-to-date and fully documented, this alphabetical guide to 2,057 names of Wisconsin's counties, towns, cities, and villages will be the definitive resource on Wisconsin place names for years to come. Readers-whether locals, travelers, or scholars-will enjoy learning about the unique history of the state as reflected in its place names. -Luanne von Schneidemesser, senior editor, Dictionary of American Regional English An extraordinary compilation of original research on Wisconsin place names presented in a very readable, informative, and entertaining style. -Roger Payne, executive secretary emeritus, U.S. Board on Geographic Names The introduction is laced with apt examples of naming patterns and sources. It explains pseudo-Indian names and fanciful but false popular explanations of many names. And, Callary includes a helpful pronunciation guide for anyone confronted with Mazomanie, Menomonie, and Muscoda for the first time. -James P. Leary, editor of Wisconsin Folklore
