Reminiscing in Kendall County

04 Sep
John Edward Vogt

Last night I finished reading Witches, Bitches and other Small Town Folks: A Hodge-Podge of the History and People of Kendall County, Texas by John Edward Vogt. The book came out last month and I wanted to go the autographing session at the Read All About It Book Store, but I had a conflict and didn’t pick up a copy until Thursday afternoon. It was a delightful read! The author reminisces about his life and what Boerne and Kendall County were like in the 30s, 40s, 50s and 60s. I learned a lot about Boerne and the happenings in the area through the eyes of a “town kid.” Most of my family are “county kids.” In the last fourth of the book, he shares information he found when he researched the county records and explains why the small rock building, where the county agent has his office, was built. He researched in depth about the formation of the county. Kendall County was the only county created during the Civil War. Very interesting! If you are interested in Boerne and Kendall County, I highly recommend you read Witches, Bitches and other Small Town Folks. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did. You can find copies for sale at the Read All About Book Store, http://www.readittexas.com/news.html.
