In One Day at Teton Marsh, Sally Carrighar tells the story of a single day at a marsh in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, based on the hours she spent watching the various animals who call the Teton marshes home. It is through the perspectives of those animals–otter, trout, osprey, mosquito, scud, mink, hare, merganser, moose, leech, frog, snail, swan, and beaver–that the events of the day are told. Carrighar effortlessly weaves together the perspectives of these critters and, through her descriptions of the natural beauty of the marsh, brings it to life for the reader. A powerful tribute to the hidden complexities of the natural world, One Day at Teton Marsh is a must-read for nature lovers everywhere.
