Reviews - What do customers think about California Missions?
The Missions as travel destinations Jan 16, 2007
The author must love the missions - they are photographed beautifully. This is a book of art and not a book about the history, archeology or sociology of the missions. If you want to be inspired to visit the missions this is your book.
If you are in forth grade and are working on your mission project this is not what you need.
