  • Lost States

    Everyone knows the fifty nifty united states—but what about the hundreds of other statehood proposals that never came to pass? Lost States is a tribute to such great unrealized dreams as West Florida, Texlahoma, Montezuma, Rough and Ready, and Yazoo. Some of these states came remarkably close to joining the Union. Others never had a chance. Many are still trying. Consider:
         •  Frontier legend Daniel Boone once proposed a state of Transylvania in the Appalachian
            wilderness (his plan was resurrected a few years later with the new name of Kentucky).
