Summary
Here is a book that brings vividly to life all the romance and glory of early Texas, and the rigors of the Franciscan Fathers who journeyed over the burning desert and barren wastes of mesquite and cactus, enduring famine and thirst and the hostility of the savage Indian tribes, to place the Cross and the royal standard of Spain on the soil of the New World. Only lately have historians come to realize how deeply the foundations of Christianity were laid by these devoted men who founded the missions.--Amazon.com
