Week 3: My family visited three of the missions last summer and I have Bl. Serra’s diary which parts we will read in class. Anything about California Missions (Caution: some of the books will not tell the true story about the missions, implying cruelty of the Franciscan methods of evangelization – simply omit these parts :-))

Week 4 & 5: Books about Alamo and Davy Crockett or History of Mexico.
