The Spanish Empire populated the American West with Catholic missions, shaping the culture and traditions of Native people forever. Today, restored missions are some of the most beautiful historical sites in California and the American Southwest. In this book, students learn that many missions have become working Catholic parishes. This title will allow students to explain events, procedures, ideas, or concepts in a historical text, including what happened and why, based on specific information in the text.
