The Great Smoky Mountain Salamander Ball
Welcome to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park - Salamander Capital of the World. Inside this book you'll follow Sara on a camping trip to the Smokies and share her delight as she becomes the first human ever to witness a Salamander Ball. Over 27 species of salamanders live in the park, including the red-cheeked, which lives nowhere else on Earth. It's this "wondrous diversity of life" that makes the Great Smoky Mountains so special, earning them protection as a national park.
