Title

Mission of Sorrows: Jesuit Guevavi and the Pimas, 1691-1767

Description

This book’s narrow focus is its strength. In his in-depth study of mission Los Santos Angeles de Guevavi, and to a lesser extent Tumacácori, Kessell provides much biographical data about the many lesser-known missionaries that served among the Pimas. In effect, Kessell has written a knowledgeable and eminently readable history of Jesuit mission activity in southern Arizona.
