Dominica

French flagAlthough France still claims the island, there are no European outposts here, and the number of Indians here make it a dangerous place to visit. Both France and England make brief landings to gather timber, but the crews retreat to the safety of their ships at night.

Much of the island is swathed in rainforest, and without and European settlers hacking down the the forest for plantation space, the clearings made by the loggers are quickly reclaimed by nature. The volacanic activity of the region makes itself felt on Dominica in the form of a lake of boiling water.

The island is cut by many rivers making it subject to flash flooding during the rainy season and making it a good source of freshwater.
