Kaplan brings his brilliance in "nose to the ground" journalism by traveling in the USA. I especially liked his observations on how we create artificial borders that do not stand the test of time. It is now seen with the influx of the Latinos into their original lands that lie inside the US borders. ( )

Kaplan travels around the western US and Canada attempting to evoke North America's near future from the land, the people, and the social conditions that he encounters. ( )
