He explored the region and worked with the indigenous Native American population. Father Kino proved that Baja California was not an island by leading an overland expedition there. By the time of his death he had established 24 missions, chapels or visiting stations. This is the story of his travels and adventures. Minimal wear to bottom edge of spine, else a very good, tight copy.
