''The documents in Lands of Promise and Despair cover the whole panoply of human life as it existed in the centuries of Spanish rule. There is much to pore over in these pages: the frustrated, baffled report of the Portola expedition of 1768, sent overland to Monterey Bay, and who, unable to recognize it even as they marched on its shores, eventually gave up and returned south. Or the heartbreaking transcripts of trials of Indians arrested after revolts, where the pitiable plight of the red man in California comes through clearly.'' --Faultline, March 2002
I was looking for Morro Bay history, so this did not fit the bill, in any way shape or form. As far as History of California, I am sure it is great!Published 9 months ago by shelagh46
