This is a concisely written, lavishly illustrated account of the founding, growth, decline and restoration of San Antonio's five Spanish colonial missions, a national treasure. Built by Franciscan friars and their Native American charges on the far frontier of New Spain, they stand today as the largest cluster of Spanish missions in the United States. One is preserved as the Alamo. The others form San Antonio Missions National Historical Park.
