CITY OF GOLD gives the readers a view of Cagayan de Oro's history through the stories of people who have made the place their home. Read about the local Boy Scout who crossed paths with General Douglas MacArthur, one of the icons of WW II, at the Cagayan de Oro port; the young girl who witnessed the 97-kilometer Bataan Death March and later emerged as one of Cagayan de Oro's most influential women; the trader who fled war-torn Jolo, settled in the city and became a successful shirt designer; the inventor of the ubiquitous "motorela"; "Lady Love," the first female DJ of the city's first live FM radio outlet, who later built our Radyo Bombo station; and many others. Cagayan de Oro is no ordinary city because of these extraordinary people. And they tell us their fascinating stories in the CITY OF GOLD. ""Truly an enjoyable read... gives a vivid picture of the uniqueness of Cagayan de Oro as well as an intimate look into the personal lives of the prominent Kagay-anons who shaped the CITY OF GOLD. Wonderful job, Annie."" -- Irene Yatco, publisher and editor of the "Philippine Journal," Vancouver, British Columbia ABOUT THE AUTHOR, ANN GORRA Ann Gorra was born in Balingasag, Misamis Oriental, and moved at the age of two with her family to Cagayan de Oro.
