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.

I remember playing under the moonlight and under the heat of the sun with marbles or rubber bands, catching grasshoppers and climbing trees. Dogs barked and hens cackled, and in the gardens grew an abundance of fruits and vegetables, spices and herbs. Creation unfolded and we smelled her symphony of scents - the sharp, tangy, soft, gentle, oily, bitter and sweet - mingling in the tropical heat. Such was life on 17th Street, a narrow strip of thin asphalt where families were raised and lives began and ended. For Agustin and his friends, Rhuel and Noli, it was a time for play, and learning about life, beauty, and the gift of creation. But not all was simple or idyllic. The old and quarrelsome woman IyaVellit lived alone in her nipa hut under a mango tree, fascinated by the moon. Everyone said she was a witch until a stranger's arrival began unraveling her secret.
