Culture can be defined as the beliefs, practices, and arts of a group of people. The culture of Puerto Rico is as varied and intricate as the many people who live there. Readers will learn that before the arrival of the Spanish, Puerto Rico was called Boriquen by the Taínos. They will also learn that it has the only tropical rain forest in the U.S. Forest System, and that it isn't an island. Puerto Rico’s culture is shaped by the landscape, resources, and its rich history. Emphasizing Puerto Rico's contributions to sports, arts, music, and literature, this book offers a comprehensive look at the country and its people.
