About this book

The Great Smoky Mountains National Park is one of America's most beautiful and popular national parks. Located in the southern Appalachian Mountains of Tennessee and North Carolina, it is home to more than 100,000 species of plant.

The grandeur and sheer scale of the park has been captured in Donald W. Linzey's new book, Natural History Guide to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. It is the most extensive volume available on the park's natural history.

Written from the perspective of a naturalist who has spent over fifty years conducting research in the park, A Natural History Guide to Great Smoky Mountains National Park not only discusses the park's plant and animal life but also explores the impact that civilization has played in altering the area's landscape.

Linzey, who has been a major contributor to the All Taxa Biodiversity Inventory, a concentrated effort to identify every species of plant and animal living within the park, draws from this deep reservoir of research. His book provides a thorough overview of everything a visitor to the park would need to know, without complex jargon. Both casual readers and those more interested in the ecology of the Great Smoky Mountains will find A Natural History Guide to Great Smoky Mountains National Park an enlightening and educational guide.
