Lost States: True Stories of Texlahoma, Transylvania, and Other States That Never Made It
What a fun romp through America through the lens of states that never became states. Some of the propositions in this book are completely far-fetched (The state of Albania?) but others give a fascinating look at just how arbitrary the borders of the lower 48 are. This is a great read for people who think that history is dull and dry and doesn't lend itself to writing with any sort of voice. Trinklein's humor pervades his writing and makes the material in this book even more fascinating.
