From Library Journal:

The fourth in a series of regional encyclopedias ( The Encyclopedia of the Midwest , LJ 7/89, The Encyclopedia of the South, LJ 1/86, and The Encyclopedia of New England), this volume covers ten states from Texas to Montana. Carpenter, the author of both this and the previous volume, has written numerous state and regional histories for young readers. Like the Midwest, this features clearly displayed statistics for states and major cities, cross references, and subjects covered in less detail, or entirely omitted, from general encyclopedias. Unfortunately, this volume is marred by an abundance of spelling and minor factual errors. (Senator Nancy Kassebaum's name is misspelled Kastenbaum in the index and Katzenbaum on pages 254 and 486.) Statistics are frequently dated, e.g., most university enrollment figures are for 1985-86. The select bibliography is somewhat dated as well. As in the Midwest , many illustrations are poorly reproduced. Fascinating information in a convenient form, but still a marginal purchase.
