Washington State Place Names is a fine start, but of such limited coverage to leave the reader driving past far too many locations without the ability to learn anything about them. I suppose the problem is that in comparison to McArthur's Oregon Geographic NamesOregon Geographic Names, nothing else satisfies.
Much of what is covered in the book could be read by merely stopping at roadside historical signs. The lack of coverage and depth detract from the book.
