As a collection of official and unofficial letters and documents in addition to testimonies collected shortly after Fr. San Vitores’ death, Fr. Garcia’s book depicts both the life of Diego Luis de San Vitores, S.J. and a narrative of events in the Mariana Islands from 1672 to 1681. The scope of the book includes not just the four brief years of San Vitores’ life on Guam, but another ten years of missionary work following his death. The volume offers a detailed narrative of the early critical years of mission activity between 1668 and 1682 in this earliest of mission fields in Oceania. As a historical source for this period, Garcia’s book is indispensable.
