Combining a big-picture history with a road trip guide, Ms. Sands’ book puts the
Spanish missions of California into a global framework and examines their cultural, historical, and scientific connections. These illustrated programs highlight exciting new discoveries about the origins of California’s indigenous people, the missions’ geopolitical context, insights from long-buried sources, profiles of historic figures whose connection to the missions is little known, rare neophyte art in the missions, a “lost mission,” a
“vanished” mission,” and more.
