Summary

This time the story is of the friendship between Juan, a little boy in the California town of Capistrano and Julian, the old gardener and bell-ringer at the Mission of San Juan Capistrano. It is Julian who tells Juan of old days at the Mission. Together they ring the bells to welcome the swallows as they come flying in from the sea on St. Joseph's day.
