The legacy of the American Indian is evident throughout the United States in the many places that have Indian names. Countless placenames have, however, been corrupted over time, and numerous placenames have similar spellings but different meanings because of the way they were interpreted by various authorities. As a companion to Volume 1 (which covered cities, towns and villages), this book covers over 1400 rivers, lakes, mountains and other natural features in the United States with Indian names. The text is arranged by state with the natural features appearing alphabetically. Counties are provided for most entries, with multiple counties listed for some entries where appropriate. In addition to name origins and meanings, geophysical data such as the heights of mountains and lengths of waterways are indicated.
