Black Robes in Paraguay by William F. Jaenike

This magnificent, deeply and scrupulously researched book will always have a place of honor in my library. It is essential reading for anyone interested in Latin American history--- and that includes the history of Baja California because of the parallel stories of their Jesuit missions. Visit the author's (and the book's) website at This one goes on my annual top 10 list. More anon.
