The Atlas of True Names reveals the etymological roots, or original meanings, of more than 600 familiar terms on today's maps of Canada.

For the first time, the Atlas of True Names uses etymology to give us an unusual insight into familiar geographical names – with intriguing results......

Once the names have been taken back to their roots and translated into English, it is immediately apparent that our world has an extraordinary affinity with Middle Earth, the mythical continent where the events of Tolkien’s ‘The Lord of the Rings’ are played out.
