KIRKUS REVIEW

Most stories with California historical background are gauged for older readers than this one, so this should fill a real need of supplementary reading for schools, as well as being a good story in its own right. The period is that of the shift from Spanish to Mexican suzerainty, of Indian unrest, of the slow infiltration of Americans. And the setting a rancho. There's adventure and mystery in the story of Luisa and her family.
