The Saints of San Simeon
The Saints of San Simeon by Michele Smith (book)
The timeless journey of THE SAINTS OF SAN SIMEON, from the devotional collection at Hearst Castle, comes to life in a new and engaging book. Author, Michele Smith, a former interpretive guide at Hearst San Simeon State Historical Monument (Hearst Castle), states, "I attempted to not just tell the story of their ("saints") lives and their history, but show their presence in our lives, especially here in California with their indirect or direct influence. In places like Spain and Italy, a saint is more like a family member in the home rather than an icon sitting in a chapel. Many of the artifacts at Hearst Castle were acquired from Spain and Italy."

The newspaper tycoon William Randolf Hearst was an avid collector of many artifacts in the 1920's and 1930's, including an extensive collection of devotional art. Michele's book also describes the lives of the saints, including their attributes and martyrdom. Order your copy now or learn more about this fascinating, rare book at www.thesaintsofsansimeon.com.
