Synopsis: The city of San Francisco was founded in the eighteenth century by a party of thirty families traveling north from present-day Arizona to Alta California, led by don Juan Bautista de Anza. Based on diaries maintained by several of the families who traveled with de Anza, North with de Anza is a fictionalized account of the expedition for young readers.

In this story, Pedro Peralta is a twelve-year-old boy for whom the arduous journey on horseback is the adventure of a lifetime. Each day brings him new chances to exhibit his bravery: worrisome appearances of Apaches, desert droughts, mountain snows, and the fording of the treacherous Colorado River.

Prior to this writing, Dorothy Erskine followed de Anza�s route by automobile and studied the scholarship of Borderlands historian Herbert Eugene Bolton. First published in 1958 and long out of print, North with de Anza will be welcomed by today�s young readers eager for information on the early history of California.

Ages 12 and up; reading level grades 6-10.

About the Author: Dorothy Ward Erskine, a native Californian, died in 1982. In addition to writing two books, she was effective in the San Francisco Bay area in planning, conservation, and environmental matters. She was a founding member of three influential organizations: the Green Belt Alliance, Save the Bay, and San Francisco Planning and Urban Research Association (SPUR). Erskine was instrumental in the formation of the San Francisco Asian Art Museum.

Hubert Buel studied painting and art at Fresno State College and the University of California, Los Angeles. He was a member of the California Water Color Society.
