Maritime Place Names - Inland Washington Waters

Inland Waters Publishing Co.

By Richard W. Blumenthal

MARITIME PLACE NAMES Inland Washington Waters is a historical text on Washington state maritime place names. It includes every named island, bay, point, inlet, pass, harbor, channel, strait, canal, passage, peninsula, rock, head, bank, bight, cove, lagoon, spit, sound, canal and shoal identified on current nautical charts. Variants and more obscure local names are frequently included as well as historical names that did not stand the test of time.

The book generally identifies the individual who named the place, when, why and for whom. In many cases, it also identifies the chart where the name first appeared.
