The Mighty Kwapo

Hi everybody,

When I first moved to Dominica 25 years ago, there were so many Kwapo in the mountains, and they made so much noise that I had to wear earplugs to bed!

Now, sadly, the Mountain Chicken, former national dish of Dominica, is virtually extinct due to a virus and perhaps overhunting. My story,  “The Mighty Kwapo,” as published by Akashic on Duppy Thursday, is an environmental fairytale that pays tribute to this unlucky frog. Click the link below to go straight to the source.
