9780997396706: Our States Have Crazy Shapes: Panhandles, Bootheels, Knobs and Points

Our States Have Crazy Shapes is a book that describes in layman’s terms the behind-the-scenes decisions that caused our leaders to carve odd shapes on our map.
Who decided that Michigan should have the Upper Peninsula when that landmass is actually attached to Wisconsin?
What’s up with that bootheel, Missouri?
Why did the shapes of our states get noticeably square as we moved west?
Why are some of our states so big and others so small?
"Our States Have Crazy Shapes" answers these questions and more. Bonus chapters describe border battles that continue to this day, as well as how Mother Nature has played a part in creating our map outlines.

About the Author:

I was raised in the wonderful suburb of Bloomington, Minnesota. Always an avid reader, I began writing my own stories while still in elementary school and pictured myself as a professional writer from a very young age. After college I attended several screenwriting workshops and began writing screenplays in earnest. Several years and seven screenplays later, I put that ambition on the back burner to pursue other interests. When the urge to write hit again, I found that my passion had changed to children’s literature, and the “Dirkle Smat Adventure Books” were born.
