For those who've kindly expressed interest in my forthcoming book, I finally have some fresh details. The book has an official title -- American Nations: A History of the Eleven Rival Regional Cultures of North America -- and even a cover, which you can see above.
Viking has it scheduled for a September 1 release, so bookstore buyers will see it in the Fall 2011 catalog, out soon. Those interested in regular updates are always welcome to drop me an e-mail.
I am an award-winning journalist and author of American Nations, American Character, Ocean's End, The Lobster Coast, and The Republic of Pirates. I'm a staffer at the Portland Press Herald, where I won a 2012 George Polk Award for my investigative reporting and was named a 2016 Pulitzer Prize finalist.
