Then take a look at these tales- youll learn some things about where you live. These stories are about a rural Connecticut town settled in the 1700s.

Place-names are everywhere-on rivers, roads, brooks, hills, buildings, parks, cemeteries, nature preserves, even rocks. The names are from Englishmen, Indians, plants, animals, battles, the Bible, hell, heroes, celebrities, and just plain folks. Place-names are strange creatures, but they all reveal the history, culture, and eccentricities of people who passed through-even in your town.

Rummage around these tales if youre a librarian, historian, geographer, genealogist, traveler, or resident of this planet.
