Reminds me of Joel Garreau's Nine Nations of North America (1981) about which he commented 3 decades later:

It also ignores state boundaries, but includes Canada and parts of Mexico and the Caribbean.




Yes, that book remains errily relevant to this day of NAFTA and TPP.

Oddly enough reading Garreau alao taught me to appreciate how much effect the 1970s oil embargo had on the American psyche: people lived in genuine fear that the sky is falling and they will all freeze to death without heating oil. Highly recommended read if you have time.


This one includes northern Mexico and Canada.
