Every March the spotted salamander, who lives under a log in the wet woods of Michigan, emerges from his winter hibernation. The salamander is ready to act out a strange and ancient drama. It instinctively knows it is time to find the woodland pond, where he will dance the dance of the salamander and find a mate.

In Thirteen Moons - a spellbinding wildlife series - Newbery Award-winning author Jean Craighead George has captured 13 North American animals in their natural environments and chronicled their fights for survival. From the lush Florida Everglades to the snowy Alaskan tundra, this series explores the intricate relationships among animals, plants, and the ever-changing environments in which they live. A favorite of adults and children alike, George's entertaining and educational tales of nature alive and in action - Julie (RB# 94361), Shark Beneath the Reef (RB# 93226), and Julie of the Wolves (RB# 93138) - have thrilled listeners for a generation. Barbara Caruso's inspired narration captures the vitality of life in the wild and will leave you rooting for the salamander's survival.
