Each setting has suggestions for sounds, sights, smells, textures & sensations, possible sources of conflict (!),people you might find there, links to other settings that might relate to and more. These aren't only single word suggestions but also descriptive phrases as well (very good ones!). Each ends with super-useful notes & tips, and examples.
I like to just browse the entries and find settings I hadn't even thought of that I want to incorporate into my story.
Complete your collection with The Positive Trait Thesaurus, The Negative Trait Thesaurus, and the fantastic Emotion Thesaurus. All unique in the Thesaurus world and same superb quality. Want even more - visit WritersHelpingWriters website for (free!) like physical attributes, textures, shapes, symbolism & motifs, weather, emotional wounds (seriously there is one for that) and more. I can't imagine what the authors are going to come up with next, but I'm looking forward to it.

I have the whole set on my kindle which I can carry with me for easy reference. On the Kindle version the table of contents is linked and you can easily jump through the book, hopping back to the table of contents at any time. They are also available in paperback versions for easy desk reference if you prefer that. If you are an author this is a series you will find very helpful.
I like that it was broken up into urban and rural or the book with be a bit unwieldy. Definitely get the companion book Urban Settings Thesaurus. You'll be all set to describe any location. I also highly recommend all the books in the series.
Five stars only because I can't give it more.
I'll get this in paperback. I always do. Absolutely should be in every writer's tool box-seriously.
An author could spend every dime of their past, present and future royalties on a whole library of reference books and still not achieve a return on their investment as valuable as this thesaurus. I think I’ll creep into the root cellar and see what’s lurking in that musty corner under the stairs.
