Reviews - What do customers think about The Names of Cape Cod: How Cape Cod Places Got Their Names and What They Mean?

Unfortunate  Jun 11, 2008
As stated in the forward, this book was originally published in 1983 under the title "Names of the Land: Cape Cod, Nantucket, Martha's Vineyard and the Elizabeth Islands." The reader is told not to expect any information on the place-names of Martha's Vineyard or Nantucket, as these will be included in a separate volume. If the original volume was only 180 pages, one is forced to wonder why this information was left out. The only reason I can see is that the author is trying to milk every dollar he can out of this project.

Now we all know that people write books to make money - there's nothing wrong with that. But this book is crasser than most. Why do I say this? Apart from the exclusion of useful information (which as of Jun 2008 has still not been published as promised), the font changes from rather small to sight-impaired large, making the book 229 pages. A pronunciation guide was omitted as were the playful woodblock illustrations that were scattered throughout the text. On the other hand a "very short history" of Cape Cod was included, containing the type of information one could get on any website.

Unfortunately the original book filled a real need. Because much information on native language has been lost, investigation into the meaning of native place-names requires real research. Now that it is out of print, there is definitely a place for something current that covers this topic. I only wish I could recommend this book. My advice? Try and find a copy of the 1983 original in a Cape Cod library, or wait for used copies to show up on this site.
