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.
