Summary
This collection reveals how each state's territory was determined and explores their individual natural environments, populations, politics, traditions, legends, and quirks while highlighting what makes each one unique as well as an integral part of the whole country. Learn new factoids about each state's history, natural resources, geography and monuments as well as the truth behind the legends. Also explore the origin of state shapes. There's a story behind every one of those crooked lines, odd extensions, and panhandles. This collection explores how struggles for independence, internal conflicts of states' rights and slavery, westward expansion, and the control of natural resources played a role in determining borders
