Book Rec from Eric

Posted on in Book, Hoopla.

American Nations by Colin Woodard

Eric says: “This book is an intriguing exploration of the regional cultural makeup of North America. Settlers brought their distinct cultural characteristics with them only to encounter other settlers whose customs were at odds with theirs. Over time this resulted in eleven distinct cultural regions. From Greenland to northern Mexico, the author delves into the origins of these differences, traces them from the parent cultures and countries and demonstrates how things are much more complicated than “blue” states and “red” states. A fascinating journey.”
