For undergraduate courses in regional geography of the United States and Canada, History of North America, or general education social science or multicultural intro-level courses. This text presents a new and exciting way to teach about the U.S., Canada, and Greenland. While the material is grounded in and structured around traditional concepts and themes, the authors use engaging examples to illustrate key concepts - including popular culture, sports, music, and travel. Their unique approach gives students an accessible understanding of various regions of the continent (and Hawai'i and Greenland). It's also a "must read" for any student planning a road trip!
