THE OLD MISSIONS OF BAJA & ALTA CALIFORNIA (NEW BOOK)

Tacomas are one the most popular trucks in Baja and made in Baja... So, one of the activities can be to visit the California Spanish Missions... which began in Baja (which was California first) and expanded all over the peninsula and eventually came into Alta (Upper) California, which is part of the United States, since 1848.

If you live in California, have you visited the old missions? Did you know there are 21 in California (USA) and 27 in Baja California (Mexico)? The missions were how the Europeans first colonized California by converting the native Indians to the European way of living. That wasn't a good thing for the majority of Indians, specially those in Baja California that were the first exposed to European diseases for the 72 years before the Padres came north to San Diego, and beyond.

The missions were established from 1697 to 1834 (after Mexico won its independence from Spain, 1821). School children in California study and build models of the missions, but only the 21 in Alta California! They are taught that San Diego was the first mission, but it was not. It was the 19th California Mission out of 48 in all.

Learn how the missions came to be built and why, what happened to them and see how they were built in no special order, but randomly as the Spanish or Padres saw fit to pacify an Indian village or establish a farming area.

Each mission is numbered based on the founding date, maps show their location and make it easy to see the order in which they were built in Old California from Los Cabos north to beyond San Francisco Bay.

Over 140 pages, 160 photos and maps... More on our web site including how to order now, and save in September before the book's October release: http://oldmissions.com

To say it wasn't a good thing for the local indians would be a huge understatement

So you didn't read the ad I posted... well, are you interested in California history? The missions were a major part of our history, good or bad. Not enough seems to be known about them and we live right here among them!

This is a NEW book (as it says in the thread title) that is going to be published next week. I am one of the authors and we are offering a pre-publication discount (will save you about $7) with free shipping and tax included.

The web site is http://oldmissions.com

The Facebook page is http://facebook.com/oldmissions

Should you like to see more or read other's comments.

Thank you.

Change was not good for them, correct... and while the Indians in Alta California were not hit as hard as those to the south, the Indians on the peninsula (Baja) were nearly wiped-out by the diseases they had no immunity to.

Last Week to get in on the special price.

Sept. 30 will be the last day to order your copy at the pre-pub discount (saves about $8) of $20 including tax and shipping. The book will be printed the first week of October, or sooner my co-author informs me...

Thank you for your interest.

Great to hear Oscar! We have shipped out over 70 books so far! Thanks for helping us get this off to a great start.

All 48 missions in California and Baja California are included... take your Tacomas easily to 45 of them, 1 will require 4WD with a locker or A-TRAC, ... and hike to the two that have no road.

Our web host (Dick Van Bree, electraweb.com) has added a zoom in version of the 1757 Jesuit map to the bottom of our web page... North and South halves of 'California' as it was known about 1747 and published in 1757... All the missions active in 1747 are shown, plus three 'started' missions beyond San Ignacio (San Juan Bautista in the Santa Clara mountains near Punta Abreojos, Dolores del Norte which became Santa Gertrudis, and Santa Maria Magdalena which could be these ruins: http://vivabaja.com/109 ) Have a look at them, bottom of page: http://oldmissions.com

Here's that map without the zoom... California as it was known in the mid 1700's, previously, most maps showed it as an island!
