Spanish Missions

Book - 2010
Rate this:
Beginning with a pithy account that delves into the conquer-and-cash-in strategy of Spanish exploration, it then nicely outlines what missions are (essentially small villages), who built them (priests and soldiers), and why they were built (to convert the natives and control the land). With an evenhanded tone, Perritano also touches on important Spanish priests (both admirable and despicable), Native revolts, and various missions in what is now Mexico and the southwestern U.S. The colorful, amply illustrated design makes for an accessible read - review by Ian Chipman, Booklist
