The middle Texas coast, known locally as the Coast Bend, is an area filled with fascinating stories. From as early as the days of de Vaca and La Salle, the Coastal Bend has been a site of early exploration, bloody conflicts, legendary shipwrecks and even a buried treasure or two. However, much of the true history has remained unknown, misunderstood and even hidden. For years, local historian C. Herndon Williams has shared his fascinating discoveries of the area's early stories through his weekly column, "Coastal Bend Chronicle." Now he has selected some of his favorites in Texas Gulf Coast Stories. Join Williams as he explores the days of early settlement and European contact, Karankawa and Tonkawa legends and the Coastal Bend's tallest of tall tales.

About the Author:

C. Herndon Williams lives in Bayside on the site of the abandoned town of St. Mary’s of Aransas. He is a native Texan, born and raised in Houston. In the course of his historical research, Dr. Williams discovered that some of his ancestors played significant roles in the history of Texas. After a career as a chemist, Dr. Williams retired to Bayside and began to indulge his interest by writing a historical-interest column, “Coastal Bend Chronicle,” for local newspapers. He is the chair of the Refugio County Historical Commission, the treasurer of the Bayside Historical Society and the editor/contributor for its quarterly newsletter, the Baysider. He can be reached at coastalbendchronicle@yahoo.com.
