Profiles of nine base-camp towns and a three-day itinerary

Special sections for natural wonders and park adventures

Stories from cultural luminaries and writers

A field guide to the Great Smoky Mountains: expert itineraries, salamanders, naturalists, potters, thru-hikers, biodiversity and landscapes.

Inside Wildsam Great Smoky Mountains, you'll find park stories from prize-winning authors, past and present; a detailed road trip plan to base-camp towns; interviews with white-water pioneers, Cherokee language teachers, trolley drivers and wildlife biologists; thought-provoking miscellany from the archives, selective recommendations about authentic Great Smoky Mountains experiences and a deep dive into how to best explore the national park.

"The natural world hums along alongside the human stories written on this landscape. The Great Smoky Mountains asks us to hold all this at once: Elk roaming where the Cherokee once hunted. Burbling streams and moonshiners stills. The curves of Clingman's Dome Tower slicing through blue mist as another day begins."
