The Spanish approach to the occupation of 18th century Texas embraced the triad of a mission and settlement. In these, the Franciscan missionaries sought to convert the natives to Christianity and make them productive. The turning point was the San Saba Mission disaster and ensuing military campaign to punish the Indians. This book offers a gripping and factual account of the mission's role near the present day Menard, Texas.
