Packed with facts, legends, and lore about seven selected missions from San Diego to San Francisco, Tales and Treasures of California's Missions opens a new vista on California history. Tragic shipwrecks, lost mines, buried bandit's loot, fabled Indian gold-all this and much more are part of the legacy of California's missions and the communities that grew up around them. So follow the padres' mustard seed trail down through the centuries, and you'll discover that there's a lot more to California's missions than the Mission Period!
