and a very entertaining read. Joel (not "John") Garreau defines nine different North American identities, the borders of which may depend upon which major league baseball team you root for.
At the age of 20, I hitchhiked across the US, and developed the impression that the US wasn't quite as "united" as I had assumed. Then I came across this book, and learned that the notion wasn't as far fetched as I feared. Just for that, this remains one of the books I refuse to live without.
Though somewhat dated, The Nine Nations of North America should be re-released.
