"The miracle of light pours over the green and brown expanse of saw grass and of water, shining and slowly moving, the grass and water that is the meaning and the central fact of the Everglades. It is a river of grass."
South Florida teems with life; mutated plant life that seems to surge a little further north with each passing year. The Foreverglades, formerly the Everglades, is a vast wetland that rises high above the elevated waters. It's populated by vicious, mutant animals and small bands of hardy descendants of the indigenous Miccosukee people. It's a place few Rafters or Pirates would dare venture into; though its mysterious growth prompts the daring who wish to discover the source.
The territory consists of all the original Everglades including the formerly higher "wet prairies" of Big Cypress. It's been steadily encroaching on Naples along the west coast and the cities of Ft. Lauderdale, Homestead, and Greater Miami on the east coast. Homestead could actually be completely subsumed, as it is so effectively surrounded that no Rafter can reach it.
