While it is a bit dated, "The Nine Nations of North America" by Joel Garreau, (1981, Avon), provided a good glimps the American (U.S. and Canadaian) geographic and regional differences. I used it a number times while teaching courses on American culture and society with international students.

Hello.  I have recently had someone who will be teaching EFL in
Russia ask me if there is a good book on American culture.  I
haven't seen a "good" one yet... and I wonder if anyone has a good
recommendation for her.

Thank you.
