An accessible history of how each of the fifty United States obtained their unique shapes offers insight into such topics as the super-sized geography of Texas, Oklahoma's panhandle, and Maryland's unusual layout, in a lighthearted chronicle that features complementary information on land disputes and military skirmishes.

Why does Oklahoma have a panhandle? Or Missouri a little nib? Is Maryland a shape?

The answers to these, and every state border, are in this guide to the shape of the fifty states, that turns the familiar lines on the American map into a mural of history from who we were to who we are.
