      Book Review: Eleven Nations of North America This post's heading is often how Colin Woodard's book is referred to, but the real title is American Nations: A History of the Eleven Rival Regional Cultures of North America, published in As someone interested in geography and politics I found it a fascinating and engaging read. The thesis of American Nations is that America can best be understood as a series of eleven regional cultures. American history can thus be best understood as the outcomes of interactions amongst these several cultures. There is, of course, nothing new in viewing American culture as a series of encounters between North and South.

    Journalist Colin Woodard has written a book, American Nations, "A History of the Eleven Rival Regional Cultures of North America".Although his focus is mostly on the United States, he does describe some of the history of Canada and describes how most of the regional cultures were the result of being settled by different groups of settlers, and how those settlers brought with them. WASHINGTON • Red states and blue states? Flyover country and the coasts? How simplistic. Colin Woodard, a reporter at the Portland (Maine) Press Herald and author of several books, says.
