Protestant Puerto Rico - - - - 1979 Perl, Lila. Puerto Rico: Island Between Two Worlds. New York: William Morrow and Company (1979), pg. 79-80. "The American takeover of Puerto Rico in 1898 separated the Catholic church from the government and saw the introduction of those Protestant faiths that predominated on the mainland. Largely through missionary activity, conversions were made to the Baptist, Methodist, Presbyterian, and other denominations. Most popular, however, were the revivalist sects with their emotional appeal and evangelistic public gatherings. Today there are many small, homegrown revivalist offshoots that are housed on storefront churches both on the island and in the Puerto Rican barrios of North American cities. "
Protestant Puerto Rico - - - - 1987 Rodgers, Mary M. (ed). Puerto Rico ...in Pictures (Visual Geography Series). Minneapolis, Minnesota: Lerner Publications Co. (1987), pg. 34. "Protestantism, unknown on the island prior to its occupation by North Americans, is fairly well represented. But on a strangly regimented basis. In order to prevent overlapping of effort, the first missionaries zoned the island by areas, and today that zoning is still apparent. The Baptists occupy a broad diagonal strip that runs across the island from Ponce to San Juan. The Methodists are located in the north near Arecibo. The western end of the island is heavily Presbyterian, and the eastern end is Congregationalist. The United Brethren are located on the south coast, and the Episcopalians are mainly in the large cities and suburbs. "

Spiritism Puerto Rico - - - - 1979 Perl, Lila. Puerto Rico: Island Between Two Worlds. New York: William Morrow and Company (1979), pg. 81-82. "Completely outside the realm of organized religion is espiritismo, or spiritism, a belief in the efficacy of magic potions, spells, incantations, and herbal remedies for illnesses, emotional difficulties, and a host of personal problems. Spiritism is practiced by lay consultants who have built up strong followings. Many such practitioners can be found in the black community of Loiza, and spiritist shops are stocked with a wide variety of preparations... Thus, while 99% of Puerto Ricans are considered to be Christians--with about 80% Roman Catholic and the rest belonging to Protestant faiths--most appear to practice an unorthodox mixture of local customs and church rituals.

If they do go to the desert for vacation and week-end camping, they no longer travel by camel, the famed 'ship of the desert.' Instead, four-wheel-drive Land Rovers, Nissans, and Toyotas are the preferred mode of transportation. The 'romantic' nomadic life is now the subject of television programs from Doha and the dreams of the youthful generation. The U.S. has 'urban cowboys.' Qatar has 'urban Bedouin.' "
