Father Kino: Journey to Discovery
 Barbara Jaquay, Ph.D., highlights the expeditions and discoveries of Father Kino in the Pimeria Alta. While his name is often associated with the San Xavier del Bac Mission, he was also a skilled mathematician and cartographer. He made more than 40 expeditions during his life while living in what was called Pimería Alta. His travels resulted in the first detailed map of the area and information on the people and cultures of the region.
