A*Fourth Novel About the California Missions


For some reason, I did not submit the manuscript of the fourth novel I wrote in the series, Father Serra's Legacy. I can't tell you why. I'd finished the first draft along with a revision and thought it was ready for publication. But, I hesitated. Time has passed and the contractual obligations no longer exist. So, I have the right to do with it whatever I wish.

With that in mind, I am going to do yet one more revision of INDEPENDENCE FLOWERS – THE MISSIONS WITHER; Florecer de la Independencia – Marchitar las Misiónes.

And, when it is complete, I will self-publish it on Amazon.com. In the meantime, I am going to publish each chapter as I finish it here on this blog. I owe it to you, those who've taken the time to follow this blog and my laziness in not posting on a regular basis.

I hope you enjoy and, yet again, I'm asking you to check one of the boxes at the bottom of this post @ Father Serra's Legacy, along with any comments you care to make. Comments are especially important to me as they will tell me if I'm going in the right direction.

Thanks and enjoy.

Nice indeed! The traveling between all 48 California missions (Baja & Alta Californis) on land was on the road network known as El Camino Real, the King's Highway...

My 2012 book co-author and historian Max Kurillo just published the second edition of his book on the Alta California El Camino Real with incredible historic maps showing the road as recorded on paper. The famous Camino Real bells and their history is also included:

We will be at the Campo de Cahuenga historic reenactment today, in Los Angeles selling our books and some collectible bells, 12:30-2:00. See period uniforms, cannon fire, the signing of the peace agreement between Mexican forces and American, in 1847, that ended hostilities in Alta California.

lvcabbie - I appriciate

Ivcabbie - I appreciate all authentic contributions to true history.
But how do you expect to be taken seriously when you use bogus images on your blog page?


Here, please use this one with my compliments.

Wiki:

Louis Choris (1795-1828) was a German-Russian painter and explorer. He was one of the first sketch artists for expedition research.

He visited the Pacific and the west coast of North America in 1816 on board the Ruric, being attached in the capacity of artist to the Romanzoff expedition under the command of Lieutenant Otto von Kotzebue, sent out for the purpose of exploring a northwest passage.
