U.S. map labeled by the most famous book and TV show set in every state

Dec 26, 2013 By Abraham

At some point in the history of literature and television some relatively popular book and TV show has been set in each state. And the folks at Business Insider have tried their hand at labeling each state by these famous books and TV shows.

Of course, this is somewhat subjective. Did they get yours right?

    Indiana: A Girl of the Limberlost by Gene Stratton Porter. I will concede that Parks and Recreation is the more popular, but Eerie, Indiana would be a more accurate depiction.

    1. F. Amos says:

      …Just remembered! In God We Trust, All Others Pay Cash by Jean Shepherd, which contains A Christmas Story (which is where the movie comes from, almost verbatim).

    1. Nick says:

      For real, or Where the Red Fern Grows…or the Outsiders…hell, theres even parts of Thor that were set in Oklahoma.
