Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal - School Library Journal
Gr 5-7This in-depth look at three California missions offers more than a travelogue. The book is divided into four sections that cover early life on the California Coast, the history of the missions, the process of secularization, and the missions in modern times. Particularly good in its discussion of the impact of the mission system on the Chumash Indians, this title also focuses on the preservation of the buildings in later years. The prose, though dry, is clear and concise. There is enough material for reports, and the attractive layout and many full-color photos, reproductions, and maps could easily attract browsers. Solid coverage of a rarely treated topic.Ann Welton, Terminal Park Elementary School, Auburn, WA
