Alberta Place Names is an alphabetized reference book of geographical place names in Alberta. Each entry contains a brief description of a location and the origins of its name. Supplementary information is occasionally provided (about key people, for example), however the descriptions are kept short to function as primers rather than complete overviews. The book includes a list of resources rather than citations on each entry, so educators could assign place names to students for a more in-depth investigation to develop research skills. The short entries would be suitable for developing readers who have a specific interest in place names or history, although the vocabulary may require the help of an established reader.
