By Graybeard on November 9, 2013
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is a delightful and educational book on the origin of approximately 2,700 place names in Ohio. Current and former Ohioans and people with ancestral roots in Ohio will enjoy it, as will geography, history, linguistics and lexicography buffs who have no connection to the state. The book's preface also is fascinating. There the author, Larry Miller, discusses, among many other things, his methodology and guiding principles for the book, and the important role played by others -- for example, historical and genealogical societies, earlier compilers of Ohio place names, and approximately 200 individuals -- as sources of information and insights for the book. As a non-Ohioan myself, I wish the book included a map of Ohio, with maybe the top 100 place names shown on it.
