Editorial Reviews


...not just an excellent reference book...a tour de force that should be acquired by every college, university and major public library in the U.S. and by most California libraries of whatever size. It's scope and depth and accuracy will be a tremendous help to students, writers, historians, cartographers or anyone interested in California geography. -- Richard H. Dillon, Professor of History, Fromm Institute, University of San Francisco

I am impressed! California's Geographic Names is the new standard. -- blurb submitted to our offices from Robert J. Chandler, Wells Fargo Historian

The quantity and value of the information included in this work are simply staggering...a boon to historians, genealogists and outdoor folk of all kinds. -- Robert C. Berlo, Secretary of the California Map Society

This epic gazetteer of more than 50,000 place names is...a supremely useful reference tool...One could literally write the history of California, from first human habitation to the present, with only these names as sources. -- Dr. Kevin Starr, State Librarian of California

This gazetteer is a wonderful tribute to our fine state...the information found here will greatly benefit this and future generations of Californians. -- Pete Wilson, Governor of California
