American Nations


A History Of The Eleven Rival Regional Cultures Of North America

By Colin Woodward

Woodward divides North America into eleven regions that do not conform to existing state or international boundaries. They are: Greater Appalachia, Deep South, El Norte, Far West, First Nation, Left Coast, Midlands, New France, New Netherlands, Tidewater and Yankeedom. He gives a history of each region and how it interacted with the others.  He thinks the basis of each area’s characteristics are determined by the earliest settlers despite later immigration. Regions form alliances to meet their own particular agendas. After reading this book, you will never look at American politics the same.
