Paintings by Chesley Bonestell. Text by Paul Johnson. This book recreates the life-style, as well as the architectural style, of these self-sufficient, self-contained walled cities. Each mission is depicted as it appeared in its prime, prior to desecularization and the destruction, remodeling or the ofter inexact restoration that followed. Travel back in time to California's Mission Period, when 21 outposts of Church and State were established in Alta, California, the most remote, least colonized portion of the Spanish Empire.
