The world’s natural and cultural heritage is disappearing fast but UNESCO is working hard to preserve it. UNESCO has created a list of more than 900 places known as World Heritage Sites. The sites on this list should be actively protected by all governments. Cultural sites on this list include the Taj Mahal, the best-known building in India, the lively Islamic center of Marrakesh and the Statue of Liberty, an extremely impressive gift from the people of France to the people of the United States. The World Heritage List also includes natural reserves such as the Galapagos Islands, a place that.

The reason I purchased this books is becaue I just moved to Orange County and wanted to learn all I could about my new home. This book is a fast way to learn a little about a lot of towns, people, events, and place names. There is history back to the Spanish explorers and profiles on such people as Walt Disney. A very good over all picture which points to the places I want to explore more.

If you live in Orange County and have ANY interest in your surroundings, you need this book.

As someone who writes and lectures about Orange County, this is one of the few volumes (out of a rather large collection) that are so invaluable that I insist on keeping within arm's reach at all times. Brigandi always does his homework, so there's never a question of the facts being straight. And in addition to being a go-to reference, this book also makes for very enjoyable casual reading. Since each entry is relatively short, even readers with Twitter-era attention spans will be able to digest and enjoy this material.

Full disclosure: The author is a good friend of mine, and I *do* own about half of the 20-some books he's written. Although I could say nice things about all those books, I think Orange County Place Names A to Z is among the most fun to read and has perhaps the most to offer a wide and general (Orange County) audience.
