Father Junipero Serra journeyed thousands of miles across the sea, over high mountains, through hot deserts and frightening jungles--from Spain to Mexico to California. This dedicated and determined missionary was one of California's first settlers, and it was he who founded its first nine missions and devoted his life to working with the Indians.From School Library Journal:
Grade 3-6 White retells the adventures, hardships, and contributions of Father Junipero Serra. While there is nothing exciting about the format, illustrations, content, or style of this book, it would be useful as an introduction or supple ment to the study of Father Serra and the California missions. As a read- aloud, it would provide students with a colorful overview of Serra's life, al though one that is simplistic and unfail ingly positive.
