Ridge after mountain ridge, blanketed with forest to the horizon's edge, Great Smoky Mountains National Park is a unique ecosystem and one of the largest protected areas in the Eastern united States. More than 500,000 acres of tree-covered mountains span the states of North Carolina and Tennessee, creating a natural setting so appealing it has become the nation's most frequently visited national park. Great Smoky Mountains: Natural Wonder, National Park explores the ecosystem of mountain and forest, the animals that inhabit it, and the Appalachian pioneers who came here to build a new life through essays by Steve Kemp. The essays are accompanies by 150 photographs that bring the Great Smoky Mountains vividly to life. Created by Adam Jones, this extraordinary photographic collection combines grand mountaintop landscapes and intimate details of flora and fauna that together give this book an exceptional sense of place.
