An accessible and informative history of the San Xavier mission and those who have loved it, cared for it, and worshiped within its walls. The church has been an inspiration to many people, including author-artist Edna San Miguel whose paintings are full of the love so many have held for this special place. As she was inspired and moved by the mission, so will readers be inspired and moved by her book.

This book is published by the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum Press and is available at the museum gift shop and obviously online through Amazon. IMPORTANT NOTE: This book is NOT available at the mission.
There are a few photographs in the book, but the illustrations are almost exclusively very well done paintings by the author.
I was thrilled to receive this book and recommend it highly to anyone with more than a cursory interest in the topic.
I pray my next book coming up will be of great Joy to you all.
