John Simpson of Hamill has written a new book called “West River Vol. 2.”
Simpson wrote his first book, “West River 1858 to 1910” in 2000 and has researched the second book ever since.
During the past few years, Simpson has had some illness issues.
An employee of the state veteran home, Shirley Schumacher, volunteered to edit and do all the artistic work for Simpson’s second book.
