Have you ever wondered why Oklahoma has a panhandle? Or why part of Michigan isn't even connected to the rest? Or why so many of the western states' borders make straight lines? The answers to those questions might surprise you! In this delightfully witty book, you'll discover the "hidden entrances" into states and their histories many bits and pieces that are either not taught or simply forgotten today. The book begins with a section detailing major wars, battles, and historical events that determined U.S. boundaries in general. Then it delves into state specific chapters. Plenty of captioned maps are included as well. Once you finish reading about your own state, you'll want to discover the fascinating stories behind every state's border.
