Randall A. Reinstedt (au); Ed Greco (il). Packed with facts, legends, & lore about 7 selected missions from San Diego to San Francisco. You will meet not only the padres & California Indians of mission days, but notorious bandit Joaquin Murrieta, hiding out in Carmel Mission while a sympathetic priest paints his portrait; famed privateer Hippolyte Bouchard being tricked into passing up the chance to sack the town of Santa Barbara; Juana Maria, the brave & lonely lady of San Nicolas, stranded alone on a wind-swept island for almost 20 years; & even glider pilot Dan Maloney, making aeronautic history in the skies above Mission Santa Clara. Tragic shipwrecks, lost mines, buried bandit’s loot, fabled Indian gold. All this & more are part of the legacy of CA’s missions. Color illus.
