Summary: Why don't people from New England pronounce their 'R's? How come some Pennsylvania Amish use cell phones? How did Northern Californians get so liberal? The clues are right on the map. Brian Unger hits the road, makes irreverent observations about how people think, speak, and act, and discovers their surprising connections to geography. With its crooked lines and odd breaks, the outline of America is a puzzle to be solved. Includes the acclaimed special that inspired the series.
