The 9 Regions Of North America - Quiz


A quiz on the so called "9 Nations of North America". "Washington Post" writer Joel Garreau published a book in 1981 where he supports his conclusion that we should forget about the borders and lines that divide the USA, Mexico and Canada. He says:"Most importantly, each nation has a distinctive prism through which it views the world."
