Book summary

Featuring 32 new photographs and freshly updated with travelers' information, this full-color guide covers all 21 historic missions of California, destinations that attract a steady stream of admirers throughout the year. Established by Spanish friars, built by native Indians, and preserved by historians, the missions are enduring testimony to the faith and craftsmanship of the Golden State's inhabitants over the years. The Missions of California pairs Melba Levick's excellent photography with back story by Stanley Young for a complete tour of each mission, from sun-kissed Mission San Gabriel to stately Mission Dolores. Visitors will want to remember every detail of the lofty bell towers, carved saints, ambitious altarpieces, and more. With this artful tribute, they can. [via]
