This is a photographic journey and written record of every peninsular mission and several vistas of Baja California. Each site was photographed and it's position recorded using a GPS instrument. The description of each mission includes oral history from area residents. Sketches record the configuration of sites not previously mapped, and in the case of the largest Baja California mission, Comondu, the foundation was traced and old photographs were utilised to generate a computer model. This information was combined with historic photographs of many of the sites. Over 300 graphic images and a description of the history and major events at the sites make this book the most comprehensive source of information on these fascinating and rapidly deteriorating architectural treasures.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"This is a truly substantial book of little known and well seen missions."
""Las Misiones Antiguas" supplies the reader with a strong introduction to baja mission history."
" Vernon has compiled a sound visual resource on Baja California's extensive mission system that will add nicely to any public or private library collection."
"A handsomely designed coffe-table book, "Las Misiones Antiguas" is the latest testimonial to the enduring romance of colonial mission churches as the visual reminders of the Spanish heritage of the Borderlands."
"The difficult part of reviewing "Las Misiones Antiguas" is taking one's eyes off the illustrations. The profusion and the quality of the photographs, drawings, paintings, maps, and computer-generated images make "Las Misiones Antiguas" a great gift idea."
