Best known for his studies of the California mission system, here Geiger examines the early work of the Franciscans in Florida, from the missionaries who accompanied De Soto and Narvaez, to to the development and growth of Franciscan missions in Florida. This is the prolific Father Geiger's Ph.D. dissertation, and it is scarce.
