    Okay, so this is a bit of bragging and, yeah, a hype for the book.

    The Sailor and The Carpenter [El Marinero y El Carpintero] Book One of Father Serra's Legacy.

    This is a novel about the exploration of the Californias and the founding of the Franciscan missions, along with the cities of Los Angeles, San Diego, San Jose, and San Francisco.

    Seen through the eyes of a marooned English sailor and a Mexican Indian who becomes his blood brother.

    The novel will be released February 20, 2013 by Bluewood Publishing and will be available in print and e-format at Bluewood Publishing - A Royalty Paying International Publisher.

    California? Probably the Walrus and the Carpenter.

    "The time has come," the Walrus said,
    "To talk of many things:
    Of shoes—and ships—and sealing-wax—
    Of cabbages—and kings—
    And why the sea is boiling hot—
    And whether pigs have wings."

    It sounds wonderful! I remember my own elementary school study of the missions, the padres, the Indians and it was so very interesting...and it seemed so real to me...
