Nevada Place Names: A Geographical Dictionary
University of Nevada Press, 1974 - 282 pagina's
Author and researcher Helen Carlson spent almost fourteen years searching for the origins of Nevada's place names, using the maps of explorers, miners, government surveyors, and city planners and poring through historical accounts, archival documents, county records, and newspaper files. The result of her labors is Nevada Place Names, a fascinating mixture of history spiced with folklore, legend, and obscure facts. Out of print for some years, the book was reprinted in 1999.
