Lost States: True Stories of Texlahoma, Transylvania, and Other States That Never Made It by Michael J. Trinklein

Lost States.jpg

Here's a book that makes geography fun. Cedarburg resident and PBS documentary producer Michael J. Trinklein lists dozens of serious and wacky state proposals in alphabetical order with maps superimposing planned borders over current states. While some proposed states never stood a chance for statehood, others made geographical, economic or cultural sense. Chuckle over the stories behind Assenisipia, Half-Breed Tracts, Yazoo and many more, and the movers and shakers, and charlatans behind them. Check catalog for availability.
