Early Days at the Mission San Juan Bautista

http://www.perseus.tufts.edu/cgi-bin/ptext?doc=Perseus%3Atext%3A2000.02.0133

Rating: 1, Awesome!

Description: This narrative about California was written by Isaac Mylar in 1929. He recounts the history of California as he learned it and recalls life in San Benito in the 1850's when he was a youngster. He shows the biases of his era: a complete lack of knowledge of California pre-Columbian people and a strong pro-mission perspective. The chapters are short and readable. The detail about daily life and conditions in the 1850's and 60's is fascinating. Standard 3.3 and 4.4.3

Comments: Based on the Library of Congress "California as I Saw It" sources and part of the Tufts University Perseus Project, this site has embedded links to key words, people and places. You can even plot the locations of the sites on a map.
