Description
 
Founded between 1769 and 1823, the twenty-one missions of California were among the earliest permanent settlements in the region. Established along the El Camino Real in a chain that allowed travelers to journey from one mission to the next in a day's time, each mission is part of the state's rich historic legacy. Many of California's greatest cities grew out of the small villages which sprang up around the missions. This book tells the story of the missions founding and of the people involved with them. The fascinating history is accompanied by lavish photographic portraits of the missions as they are today.
