I have mentioned the book, American Nations: A History of the Eleven Rival Regional Cultures of North America by Colin Woodard, a number of times. It has made a big impact on the way I now view this country and the very meaningful regional differences that impact our culture.
For example, there are tremendous differences in the ancestors of us folks in the “deep south” and those who first inhabited New England’s “yankeedom.” Differences that are impossible to ignore as we mistakenly try to compare education in say, Massachusetts, and Alabama.
And in June, my son Kevin is doing a series of webinars with the support of the Alabama Humanities Foundation, to discuss the book. These will take place at 4 p.m. central time on June 1, 8, 15, 22 and 29.
