Since its release in 2009 The California Missions Source Book has become the definitive reference on the California missions.  This third edition includes the 21 missions and San Antonio de Pala, the only mission-era asistencia (sub-mission) which remains intact and continues to serve the descendants of its original Indian community.

The Source Book is an indispensable guide to the missions, richly illustrated with images, charts, and maps, it features:

  • Fact Sheets on each of the missions, with 23 categories of information
  • An historic 1823 Map of Alta California
  • Exhibits showing the population data for the missions, presidios, and pueblos
  • 57 line drawings
  • 15 paintings 
  • 20 plat maps
  • 15 architectural drawings
  • Over 80 full-color photographs

A hard cover, spiral bound format makes it extra sturdy for use by scholars in the field, as well as for mission docents and visitors.
