FYI: Dict. of Alaska Place Names (Big Book) now online/free

Hi folks,
It looks like the University of Alaska Fairbanks has put The Dictionary of Alaska Place Names online in pdf form.
Per the webpage:
"This is a PDF version of the publication by Donald J. Orth published as Geological Survey Professional Paper 567, 1967, reprinted in 1971" ... lace-names

This is the "Big Book" of Alaskan Place Names (1,092 pages). The original hard copy edition is out of print and original editions are costing several hundred dollars. A feast of Alaskan historical information.

Toponym Freaks rejoice! :)
