The Historical Dictionary of the Discovery and Exploration of the Northwest Coast of America tells of the heroic endeavors and remarkable achievements, the endless speculation about a northwest passage, and the fighting and manipulation for commercial advantage that surrounded this terrain . . .For a succinct endorsement of this volume, one cannot do much better than cheer, 'It's about time!' * Nautical Research Journal, December 2009 *
His writings are definitive works in a field ready for such definition. . . . Inglis is a highly competent historian as well, one with a sense for the meticulous assembly of data. . . . Astonishingly detailed and exhaustive product is the result of that intent, and clearly is the result of a lifetime's painstaking scholarship. . . . A detailed chronology is supported by maps and a lengthy biography, leavened with selected historical illustrations, all of which serve to frame the heart of the book. . . . A very clean text and attention to detail . . . make the ook a pleasing experience physically. . . . Inglis has arguably produced the most useful single volume yet published, for student, scholar and lay reader alike. * International Journal of Maritime History, December 2009 *
This new dictionary will best suit large comprehensive collections. * Booklist, October 2008 *
