26 August 2017. Geophysical and Cultural Map of North America

________________________

The original lettering on this map SUCKED. Therefore, I pulled out the old PS and got to work. I also spiffed up the map itself with some PhotoShop enhancements to make it POP. By the way… most of the cultural regions are spot-on. New England and Atlantic Canada do share a common culture… Texas IS distinct from the rest of the old Confederacy (and West Texas is more aligned with Arizona/New Mexico/Norteño Mexico)… the Prairie Provinces and the Upper Midwest are one… “California” is really only a small coastal strip and Washington/Oregon/BC/Northern California are the Northwest… the Northeast and Southern Ontario really do make a discrete region… the First Nations do “rule” most of Canada. The most interesting region is Deseret… the Mormon heartland. It’s the most Anglo part of the country, so one could even say that Mormons are the most “American” of Americans. They’re Anglos who follow a made-up American religion. They have no cultural ties left to foreign parts, as most of the rest of us do.
