Summary
Important account of Lower California by the German Jesuit, Jacob Baegert, who spent seventeen years (1751-1768) in Baja California, primarily at the Mission of San Luis Gonzaga, until the expulsion of the Jesuits from Mexico in 1767. Baegert's account provides important details on the culture of the Indians of Baja California, including the Pericues, Guiacuras, and Cochiemes. The first part is an overview of California, its climate and products; the second part describes the inhabitants; and the third part contains a history of the introduction of Christianity to California. Henry R. Wagner, bibliographer of the Spanish Southwest, states that the German Jesuits were especially dissatisfied toward the end of the Jesuit regime in California, and Baegert's bitterness is evident in his book: "It was a land full of ferocious beasts and even more ferocious Indians, the soil was poor, the water undrinkable and there was no fuel to be had"--From the William Reese Company website (www.reeseco.com), "General Americana."
