Description

From Alabama to Wyoming, GREETINGS FROM THE 50 STATES covers the origin of each state's name, official and unofficial nicknames, and the year it was granted statehood. Behind each state's name is a story of how Americans felt about the land they settled, how they connected to its history and geography, and how they recognized its unique character.

Did you know 27 state names come from Native American words, or at least what the European settlers thought they heard?

Can you figure out which states are named the Mosquito State, the Mud-waddler State, or the Stub-toe State?
