The dusky blue hills of the Smokies roll off into the distance from the view atop Clingman’s Dome at Great Smoky Mountain National Park. Hemlock, oak, red spruce, Fraser fir, and tulip poplar populate the old forest today, housing one of the most diverse populations of plants, animals, and insects of any temperate climate in the U.S. The Smokies are an opulent home for a variety of wildlife including black bears, white-tailed deer, wild turkey, squirrels, fox, salamanders, and (in the summer) fireflies. Pictured here is a Mama bear with her cubs, illustrated by Anderson Design Group in a timeless, early 20th-century style.
- True South puzzles are made with 80-point blue board, which creates a thicker puzzle piece with a more solid "hand."
- All of our puzzles are stamped with metal dies made by one of the few artists in the world who creates jigsaw puzzle die masters by hand.
- Puzzle images are created in a collaborative effort between artists and True South to highlight unique facts carefully researched about each location. Fun facts are listed on the back and inner sides of boxes.
