Book Review: The Not-Quite States of America: Dispatches from the Territories and Other Far-Flung Outposts of the USA by Doug Mack

Stars: 5/5

Location: US Virgin Islands, American Samoa, Guam, Northern Mariana Island, Puerto Rico

Sub-genre: Travelogue, history

Publication Date: 2017

Entertaining and informative–everything a travel book should be. A great intro to the important history of the US territories, it also includes much about the current situation of these lands, told through the author’s own travels and the people he meets along the way. Accessible yet dealing with some tough and complicated issues, I’d highly recommend to any American reader.
