"By Sunday, May 14, 1769, Junipero Serra in Baja California, James Cook on the Island of Tahiti, and Daniel Boone in the Blue Ridge Mountains had begun a series of events that would change their own lives and point their worlds in entirely new directions. By the time these events had developed, clashed, mingled, and eventually worked themselves out, that part of the west coast of America known as California would be changed forever." -from the dust jacket.
