Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

This edition of a well-known Northwest reference work marks an improvement in and expansion on earlier editions. The first editions of this title were compiled by the current editor's father, Lewis A. McArthur. Lewis L. McArthur continues the tradition in this work, which includes more than 5400 entries of state place names that supply dates for when the name was first used, reasons for the choice of name, county in which the site is located, and other useful historical information. A well-constructed index is also provided. One shortcoming, however, is the lack of a pronunciation key. Although this work focuses just on the state of Oregon, it is much more extensive and current in its area than Place Names of the Pacific Northwest Coast (1969. o.p.).

Own this book if you love to take road trips in Oregon. Take it with you everywhere, because there is so much to learn just by looking and reading about a place you never thought about!

This book is such a treasure. You can spend hours looking through it all. Its a wonderful database for places in Oregon you may not be able to read about online. Buy this if you research genealogy in Oregon. Very helpful to identify census localities etc.

If you ever want to know how any location, city, river, creek or other landmark in Oregon was named, this is the book. It is so full of information that it is almost overwhelming, but it is a great reference tool. Or like my friend who suggested it told me: Perfect for the weekend explorer by car or hiking. You cannot find this obscure information on the internet. It is simply too old and too minute, but you will be pleased to have found it. The history of the book itself being started decades ago, then finished by the son, is impressive as well. Excellent for history buffs who may have grown up in Oregon or still live there!

Ever wonder how Post got it's name? Find it herein. Simply the best to toss in the back when traveling the highways and dirt roads of the Oregon outside of the Peoples' Pretentious Republic of Portland. But read it quick: some names have been deemed racist and are being bowlderized out of modern print (hint - that some knowledge is now 'forbidden' should be enough to get one to buy this). I don't know if there will be a future cross-reference! If this does not arouse your curiosity, well, I can't help you. Nuff said. Buy it.

We bought this book a few years back. Kid moved out and requested one for Christmas. Love the fact that he remembered how cool the book was. Can't beat the history. Neighbor borrowed and has already planned out his summer vacation. Thanks for all the work to accumulate the info.
