North American Maps for Curious Minds: 100 New Ways to See the Continent
I thought this book was going to be more about all of North America, but instead it is mostly about the states in the United States; there is very little about Canada or Mexico. So that was disappointing, and not what I was hoping for.
That being said, it is an informative book that covers many different aspects of this area. There are chapters about Geography, Politics, Nature, Culture, Populations, Lifestyle, and Industry, with lots of maps in each. Many of these are not interesting to me at all, but there are others that are more interesting, like the one that shows the most common last names in each state, or the hours of daylight in each place.
One very interesting but rather sad map shows how few places are left to stargaze without light pollution. Some others that I found interesting show which states people are moving to and from, where the largest public libraries are, and the greatest dinosaur fossil finds. Whatever your interests, you are sure to find many surprises as you browse through this book.
