Summary
American Nations is the history of the founding, development, and conflicts between eleven cultural groups across the North American continent. Woodard clearly explains the core components of El Norte, New France, New Netherland, Yankeedom, Tidewater, The Midlands, Greater Appalacia, The Deep South, The Far West, The Left Coast, and First Nation.
Critique
In the wake of recent National elections this title seemed to offer a historical understanding of deep seated cultural divides in America. It was a fascinating read and hard to put down as the author provides enough broad brush strokes and fine detail. Our "united" states are really made up of eleven separate national entities, which are constantly fighting for cultural dominance and only occasionally working together for a common purpose. Highly recommended!
