Lost States - Michael J. Trinklein A nice blend of history and humor, this collection was inspired by the author's fascination with the many failed attempts to create different states, new states and varied combinations of already existing states. A great read for anyone at all interested in history and how the shifting boundaries of countries and states can have such a powerful effect on world events.

I found the stories about Nickajack, Rio Rico, Lost Dakota, Howland Island and one of the earlier proposals for Minnesota that contained much of South Dakota. Interesting facts about figures of American history, such as George Washington to William Seward are mentioned throughout, adding to the character of the book. Recommended.
