 Our Description

 

This is a true account of the legendary 'Padre On Horseback', Father Eusebio Francisco Kino, a Jesuit missionary who was dedicated to helping the lives of the natives of New Spain. An explorer, builder of missions. Kino opened the centuries-old irrigation canals, long abandoned by the Hohokam indians, bringing water to the parched desert lands, making possible-the growing of grain and vegetables for the natives and their animals.

Kino established 24 missions, seven of which are in the state of Arizona, A statue of Father Kino now stands in our nation's capitol Rotunda,

Kino was also a noted cartographer, drawing maps of the areas he traveled. He was the first to prove that Baja was not an island, as Sir Francis Drake claimed, but a peninsula.

While on the Pacific shore Kino found a sea shell and he carried it with him on all his journeys...and it became the key to his greatest discovery.
