Between the Nepean River and Mount Victoria is sandwiched over 220 years of European history and thousands of years of Aboriginal heritage, some 3,200 names have been applied to the places in between. This book is about those names, the men and women who named them, why and when they did.

Lead author Brian Fox has been on the job for over 30 years, systematically collecting and documenting every fact and every event.

Researching and honing the text has been the role of co-authors John Fox and Michael Keats respectively.

A tome of 708 pages, full colour, softcover with flaps, it includes more than 180 colour photographs, 70 of different waterfalls.

This text is a must for every person interested in the Blue Mountains whether they are a resident, bushwalker, teacher, history buff or curious visitor.
