Fun read of what could have been and what might still happen in the future.

This was like a non-fiction read of possible alternate histories of the United States. If certain events had gone differently, who knows where we might have ended up.

This book is an interesting compendium of the states that didn't make it into the final fifty.
The writing is very conversational, however, and the information is cursory. Don't expect deep understanding.
