The undertaking of Guevavi at the Santa Cruz River in what's now southern Arizona served as a focus of Jesuit missionary pastime one of the Pima Indians on New Spain's some distance northwestern frontier.

For three-quarters of a century, from the 1st stopover at through the well known Eusebio Francisco Kino in 1691 until eventually the Jesuit Expulsion in 1767, the tricky technique of exchanging one tradition with another—the center of the Spanish undertaking system—went on at Guevavi. but all however the preliminary years presided over through Father Kino were forgotten.

Drawing upon archival fabrics in Mexico, Spain, and the United States—including bills via the missionaries themselves and the surviving pages of the Guevavi list books—Kessell brings to lifestyles these forgotten years and forgotten males who struggled to rework a local ranchería into an ordered challenge community.

Of the 11 Black gowns who resided at Guevavi among 1701 and 1767, just a couple of are popular to historical past. Others—such as Joseph Garrucho, who presided extra years at Guevavi than the other Padre; Alexandro Rapicani, son of a favourite of Sweden's Queen Christina; Custodio Zimeno, Guevavi's final Jesuit—have the main points in their roles crammed in the following for the 1st time.

In this in-depth research of a unmarried missionary middle, Kessell describes intimately the day-by-day around of the Padres of their actions as missionaries, educators, governors, and intercessors one of the often-indifferent and occassionally adverse Pimas. He discusses the Pima rebellion of 1751 and the occasions that led as much as it, concluding that it truly persevered sporadically for a few ten years.

The transforming into ferocity of the Apache, the disastrous result of convinced govt policies—especially the removing of the Sobaípuri Indians from the San Pedro Valley—and the declining local inhabitants as a result of a mix of enforced tradition switch and epidemics of ecu illnesses also are conscientiously explored.

The tale of Guevavi is one in every of carrying on with adversity and triumph. it's the tale, eventually, of explusion for the Jesuits and, a number of brief years later, the tip of venture Guevavi by the hands of the Apaches.

In Mission of Sorrows Kessell has projected meticulous learn right into a hugely readable narrative to supply a major contribution to the historical past of the Spanish Borderlands.
