Coldass Creek. Devils Elbow. Whim Knob. Mush Island. Here in one thick volume are 20,000 entries that locate the geographical features of North Carolina--counties, towns, cities, rivers, creeks, lakes, mountains, gaps, ridges, bays, sounds, inlets. All are listed and in many cases the derivation of the name and additional historical data are included. The North Carolina Gazetteer is a fascinating and indispensable reference for Tar Heels (and those who wish they were), tourists, students, historians, geographers, journalists, and genealogists.
