About State Names

I'm Kathy Guyton, and I wrote this book:  http://www.mountainstormpress.com

I have begun making videos that will complement the book with new information, new research, news about state names, etc.  Also, I might throw in a little politics now and then.

About the book:

Do you know how each of the American states was named?  And I don't mean just "what the word means" or "which river has the same name."  I mean HOW, WHY, WHEN, WHERE, and WHO got to decide?  Well, I wondered about that several years ago, and went looking for the book that would tell me.  After searching the internet and all of my local libraries, I came to the conclusion that the book didn't exist.  So I wrote it.  The result was "State Names:  The Stories of How Our States Were Named,"  and I'm working on uploading it to the internet.

Thank you!
