journals. For over eighty years, he lived in the central Texas area,
principally at Oglesby in the "land of Coryell." Simmons wrote
one book of verse and two books on the history of the area he
knew so intimately.
Situated in central Texas, Coryell County is a typical agricul-
tural region but possibly should be better known for the out-
standing leaders produced there. Perhaps the achievements of
Coryell County's native sons and daughters are reflected in the
interest shown recently in the area. This book is the third one
on the county published in the last three years.
Simmons' History of Coryell County is a collection of thirty
sketches which deal with persons, places, and customs. Although
this slender volume adds little to information currently availa-
ble on the county, it does enable collectors to obtain a copy of
the long out-of-print work.
