From the treks of the padres who established the missions of California, El Camino Real – the King's Highway – became the dramatic story of the Golden State.

The birth of the automobile era in the early twentieth century and the construction of Highway 101 so near to many of the twenty-one missions enhanced that story. Adding drama in the 1930s was the introduction of the Southern Pacific's celebrated Daylight passenger trains along the same route.

The relationship of the missions, the coastal highway, and the railroad paralleling them – never previously explored together – has at last been told. Lively descriptions and thoughtful analysis by historians Tom Zimmerman and Roger L. Titus bring that story to life, enriched by beautiful vintage and modern images and post cards.
