Junipero Serra: California, Indians, and the Transformation of a Missionary

Junípero Serra (1713–1784),one of the most widely known and influential inhabitants of early CA,embodied many of the ideas and practices that animated the Spanish presence in the Americas. In this definitive biography, translators and historians Beebe and Senkewicz bring Serra to life and illuminate the Spanish period of CA and the Southwest. Combining history, culture, and linguistics, this new study conveys the power and nuance of Serra’s voice and, ultimately, his impact on history.
