The first mission, San Diego de Alcala, was founded on July 16, 1769, by Father Junipero Serra, who went on to found eight more missions.

Franciscan priests established 21 missions between 1769 and 1833 in Alta California, accompanied by military outposts. Their goal was to spread Christianity among the local Native Americans. To facilitate overland travel, the mission settlements were situated approximately 30 miles (48 kilometers) apart, about one day's journey on horseback, or three days on foot. The entire trail eventually became a 600-mile (966-kilometer) long "California Mission Trail.

A recent book details the dark side of the Spanish missions and the controversial saint Junípero Serra. What the bill utterly omits is that locked within the missions is a terrible truth - that they were little more than concentration camps where California's Indians were beaten, whipped, maimed, burned, tortured and virtually exterminated by the friars.

The B-52 is the longest serving and most versatile of the United States Air Force's combat aircraft

At the heart of the evil of Nazism was Hitler's "witch doctor," Heinrich Himmler, and his peculiar and deadly organization with the mundane name Schutzstaffel, literally "protective squadron. Undoubtedly you know them better as the feared SS, the very essence of Nazism. Their threatening double lightning bolt is perhaps the most dreaded symbol of the Third Reich. The facts of the SS's origins are truly stranger than fiction. The B-52 is the longest serving and most versatile of the United States Air Force's combat aircraft. The Stratofortress entered active service in 1955 and is scheduled to continue as part of the air force's inventory through 2040.

California missions of Alta California ( New Spain ) tell a story of state and national evolution. Missions built in the 18th and 19th centuries still remind Californians and visitors of the European explorers who came by sea and land to conquer a new land. Under Spanish rule, the first California mission fort was established. Both armed forces and Franciscan shepherds came to colonize California outposts and to convert Native Americans to the Christian faith. As more American settlers came west, the mission was secularized in the 1830s. Until after the Civil War, the original mission was abandoned.

I was very interested in the history of California and felt that had to include the history of the missions. There are several books on the topic; but since I had read and very much enjoyed Bill Yenne's book "Indian Wars", I ordered this book. It is well written and is thorough in covering the topic. It adds much to one's knowledge of the history and culture. The book has many wonderful color pictures of the missions. I certainly strongly recommend this book.

The Missions of California is an excellent introduction for anyone wishing to begin their study of these California historical icons. Yenne gives the reader a nice overview of each mission's history as well as the history of the entire mission chain. While the format (founding, agricultural statistics, unique personality at the mission, decline, restoration) does become a little tiring when stretched over 21 missions, the pictures more than make up for any discomfort the repetition causes. All in all, The Missions of California would make an informative, attractive addition to any coffee table.
