    North America was settled by people with distinct religious, political, and ethnographic characteristics, creating regional cultures that have been at odds with one another ever since. Subsequent immigrants didn't confront or assimilate into an "American" or "Canadian" culture, but rather into one of the 11 distinct regional ones that spread over the continent each staking out mutually exclusive territory. In American Nations, Colin Woodard leads us on a journey through the history of our fractured continent....

    Story
    Would you listen to American Nations again? Why?

    Yes, there's plenty of meat on the bone for a second listen.


    What did you like best about this story?

    It provides a framework from which to understand many peculiarities of culture that separate the various "nations" of America. I think it can provide a more rational way of understanding some of the deeply rooted differences that tend to exasperate without proper context.


    Any additional comments?

    If I were to level a criticism, it would be that Woodard gets a bit too personal at the end of the book.
