Soldiers and Their Families of the California Mission Frontier - Jack S. Williams; Thomas L. Davis
ISBN: 0823962857
Publication Date: 2004-01-01
Soldiers of the California Mission Frontier and Their Families explains why Spain sent soldiers to California, and paints a picture of what life was like for the soldiers living and working at the California missions and presidios. There to protect the padres and the Native Americans who lived on the missions, the soldiers also made these communities their home. They raised families, worked the land, and formed relationships with the people they had come to protect. The book also explains what life was like for the women and children of the mission soldiers.

Mission San Francisco de Asis - Kathleen J. Edgar; Susan E. Edgar
ISBN: 9780823958870
Publication Date: 2003-09-01
The story of the missions is a compelling human drama that is a vital piece not only of California history, but also of American history. Indeed, many keys to California's past lie in the stories of the 20 missions that stretch along the state's west coast from San Diego to San Francisco. This vital series is compatible with the mission-based curriculum used in fourth-grade California classrooms. It resonates equally with all social studies programs that explore the defunct notion of colonialism and its controversial role in the history of the United States, and with curricula that seek to explore the interaction of different cultures and the rights and voices of indigenous peoples.

A Mission for the People - Mary Ann Fraser (Illustrator)
ISBN: 0805050507
Publication Date: 1998-04-15
When Spanish missionaries arrived on the beautiful shores of what is now the Santa Barbara region of California, they built a mission that came to be called La Purisima (another name for the Virgin Mary). Its construction changed the lives of the native Chumash people forever and shaped the history of all the peoples of the Southwest. Award-winning author and illustrator Mary Ann Fraser tells the exciting story of the Chumash and all those who came to La Purisima--Spanish missonaries and soldiers, Mexican colonists, Russian and British traders who set up ports nearby, and Anglos hoping to strike it rich in the 1840s gold rush. Filled with fascinating details and animated by the sweep of centuries of dramatic events, this tale of one mission opens a window into the history of California and the American West.
