On the border between North Carolina and Tennessee lie the forests and mountains of America’s most visited national park, Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Renowned for the diversity of its plant and animal life―the most biological diversity of any area in the world’s temperate zone―this beautiful place also boasts some of the last remaining pockets of Southern Appalachian mountain culture. The park offers countless opportunities to capture its beauty and diversity on film, and in this book professional photographer and writer Jim Hargan leads you to some of the best photo sites throughout this 800-square-mile wonderland. 90+ full-color photographs.
