"Franciscan Pioneers" is now in Spanish.

 

"Pioneros Franciscanos" published by Ediciones Palabra

To that composite American identity of the future, Spanish character will supply most of the needed parts. No stock shows a grander historic retrospect -- grander in religiousness and loyalty, or for patriotism, courage, decorum, gravity and honor.
                          Walt Whitman, 1883
