Dominican Republicby Kerry-Ann Morris, Nafisah Ismail
The Dominican Republic has magnificent mountain ranges, beautiful beaches, and one of the largest rivers in the Caribbean. Although the country has progressed steadily since Spanish conquistadors first arrived in the sixteenth century, Dominican history is marked by political instability and harsh dictatorships. From the country's highest peak of Pico Duarte to the fertile lowlands of Cibao Valley, from the stately residence of Diego Columbus to brightly colored village houses, and from treasure-laden colonial ships to famous baseball stars, this book investigates the spirit of a people always striving for a better future.
