Description - Native American Place Names of Rhode Island by R A Douglas-Lithgow
This dictionary of Native American places was originally published in 1909. Alphabetically arranged by Native American name, this reference work gives insight into the Native origins of Rhode Island cities, towns, rivers, streams, lakes, and other locales.
