Originally published in 1995, The Cambridge Gazetteer of the United States and Canada contains more than 12,000 entries of places of all kinds. It is a detailed, alphabetically arranged enyclopedic dictionary of places. It includes coverage of all cities and towns having populations of over 25,000. But the Cambridge Gazetteer is far more than a dictionary of populated places. It contains thousands of entries describing waterways and mountain ranges, parks and historic sites and major urban neighbourhoods. It captures the grand sweep of modern America. Throughout, the book is informed with a sense of the history of each place described and prominent people associated with particular places are described within the appropriate entries. The role of ethnic and minority groups is given significant attention.
