European place names appeared in America beginning with the 16th century, when Europeans came to inhabit the New World. The names were brought by the new inhabitants, who moved from the East Coast to the west, as more and more people arrived from Europe. Some of the names that appeared on the map that time were those of English and French kings and queens. Many place names were given to honour famous people, living and dead. Some names were taken from history and literature. There were names taken from geology, others were connected with important events in the life of the people. Here and there, we find a name that was given simply as a joke, but for some reason was never change d.

The people who came to America did not try to invent new names for the settlements and towns they built, but often gave the new place the same name as the place they had come from. Along the coast of the United States, we find such English names as Plymouth, Cambridge, London, Boston. English names often appear with the word new as a prefix: New England, New York, New Britain.

The people who came to America did not try to invent new names for the settlements and towns they built, but often gave the new place the same name as the place they had come from. Along the coast of the United States, we find such English names as Plymouth, Cambridge, London, Boston. English names as Plymouth often appear with the word new as a prefix: New England, New York, New Britain.

When the first English inhabitants, or their children left their homes on the East Coast and moved to the tremendous forests and rich lands in the west, they continued the tradition of giving the new places the same names as those as they had left behind. As a result, there are twenty-two towns in the USA that are called London or New London, eighteen towns named Bristol, many named Chester, Windsor or New Windsor.

There are towns named Philadelphia in four states, besides the Philadelphia that is the largest city in the state of Pennsylvania. It is easy to imagine the difficult conditions this created for the postal service. This explains the American tradition of writing the name of the state when addressing letters. If the sender does not write the name of the state, he can never be sure that his letter will go to the right address.

Part of the boundary between the United States of America and Canada is formed by four of the five Great Lakes. The largest of them is Lake Superior, which, as its name implies, is the highest above the sea. South of it is the Lake Michigan, entirely in the United States territory; to the east is Lake Huron, from the southern end of which the St. Clair River leads into Lake Erie. From Lake Erie the Niagara River rushes over the famous Niagara Falls into Lake Ontario, out of which flows the St. Lawrence River.

All the Great Lakes are connected by canal or navigable channels to from not only the largest body of fresh water in the world, but also the most important unit of inland waterway. The Lakes take a very important place in the economic life of both the United States and Canada. From Chicago at the southwest end of Lake Michigan, railway lines radiate in all directions - across the Rockies to the Pacific Coast, southwards following the of the Mississippi to New Orleans - and the city1.s prosperity has been much increased by its position as a lake port.

Buffalo is a lake port, at the northern end of Lake Erie. It’s the fourth largest port and the seventh industrial city in the United States of America. The Lakes can be used only between the months of April and December, as they freeze in winter. The importance of the Lakes is not only commercial: along their shores are vast stretches of forest, meadowland, and grassland, as well as towns, camps, and small country towns.

The eastern part of the Midwest is corn country. This region is often called the Corn Belt. Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Iowa, Nebraska, Kansas, and Missouri are leading Corn Belt states. Farming is the leading Midwest industry. Corn is the pioneer American crop. It was certainly one of the first crops grown on American farms. The Indians taught the early settlers how to grow it. As the Pioneers began to move westward, corn moved with them. In the Midwest these Pioneers found an ideal climate for growing corn.

The northern part of the Midwest is a hay and dairy region. Wisconsin is the leading dairy state. Most of Wisconsin milk is made into cheese and butter. Nearly half of the cheese made in the United States comes from Wisconsin.

The drier western parts of the Midwest are wheat lands. From the Dakota’s southwards to Oklahoma is wheat country. The Midwest has everything to be a great manufacturing center. There is a big supply of raw materials - iron ore, Livestock, wheat, and timber.

Facts from Geographical Position of the USA

Only in few parts of the West there is enough quantity of water for farming. There are vast areas of desert. But there are places where enough rain falls to allow scrub plants to grow. There huge livestock ranches are found. Sheep ranches also use the dry lands. Sheep can browse on leaves, weeds, and woody plants which cattle will not eat. So sheep can live on parts of the western lands where cattle cannot get along. The three states of the West Coast - California, Oregon and Washington - have important farm lands.

California became a part of the United States in 1845. When gold was discovered four years later, California’s population grew rapidly. Wheat soon became the chief crop. Rice and barley became important too. Today four-fifths of California’s crop lands are still used for grazing and for grains. But other more specialized crops produce nine-tenths of the value of California's farm products. There crops are cotton, vegetables, fruit, and diary products.

The centre of West Coast manufacturing is the Los Angeles area. Los Angeles was a farm community. Then the oil was discovered. Oil brought manufacturing in this region. Aircraft manufacturing became the chief industry. Automobile assembly plants and tire manufacturing are also here.

In 1959 Alaska became the 49th state of the USA. Attitudes towards Alaska were different in 1867, when the peninsula was purchased from Russia. Then most Americans had little interest in “the land of icebergs and polar bears”.

In those parts which lie above the Arctic Circle, Alaska still is the land of icebergs and polar bears. Ice masses lie buried in the earth, which permanently frozen to a depth of several hundred feet.

Alaska is America’s largest state, but very few people live there. The capital of Alaska is Juneau.

The currents of the Pacific warm Alaska, and the Arctic chills it. Alaska lies between 71 degrees and 56 degrees north latitude, stretching southward from the Arctic Ocean to the Pacific Ocean. This immense tongue of land is sharply divided into three distinct regions. In the north, Arctic Alaska reaches from the Arctic Ocean to the rough mountains of Brooks Range. Central Alaska lies between Brooks Range and Alaska Range. From the western face of the Alaska Range, another block of territory slopes down toward the Bering Sea and Russia.

The stream pressure in the Drake Strait was measured in 1969. It was 270 mln cubic metres a second.

Arctic Alaska has been the home of the Eskimos for countless centuries. It is believed that the Eskimos moved there from Mongolia or Siberia. A short route for their passage would have been the Bering Strait, which is named for Vitus Bering, the sea captain who discovered Alaska on his voyage to Russia in 1741.

The gold was discovered in the Canadian Yukon. Thousands of Americans rushed into Alaska, on their way to Canada. Some never left Alaska, and some returned there from the Canadian gold fields when gold was discovered at home in 1889.

After fishing Alaska’s chief industry is lumber and paper production. There are also large deposits of coal, copper, gold, and other important minerals.

The twenty islands of Hawaii lie upon the Pacific, from southeast to northwest. They belong to the hot climate, but the climate is rather less hot because of the ocean currents that pass their shores, and because of the winds that blow across the land from the northeast. On the larger islands, volcanic mountains from which lava flows, rise up out of the sea. Along the gently sloping land areas to the southeast, there are beaches of yellow, white and black sands.

The largest island, Hawaii, lies at the southeastern end of the chain and is almost twice as large as all other islands combined. Five volcanoes gave the island its form. Of the two active volcanoes, Mauna Loa is the world’s largest. It towers above the scenic Hawaiian National Park, which stretches from the mountain peak across the sea to the neighbouring Mauni. Hot-climate plants, sandy desert, waterfalls and craters, caves and beaches make the park a tourist attraction.

The Great Salt Lake is in the northwest of the state of Utah, close to Salt Lake City, the capital. It is so salty that the human body cannot sink in it. Its present area is much smaller than ancient lake of which it is a remnant.

The decrease in size is due partly to evaporation, partly to diversion for irrigation of some of the streams which fill it. The saltness of the lake has increased as its area has diminished, and today it is about six times as salty as the ocean.
