Bootlegger
The people I’m going to tell you about in this story are long gone.  The winds of Time have blown miles of dirt over their graves.  History left them behind, lore and legend never got it correct.  This story needs to be told, I’m sure that I am the only one left alive that knows it.  All that’s left are my memories and some old faded pictures.  I don’t have much time left, so here is the true story of my family, the Little Rose Gang.

Brooklyn’s Bridge
On September 28, 1924, German immigrants Henry and Ella Borgman arrived in New York Harbor along with hundreds of others who dreamed of a better life in America. A year later, on their route home across the Brooklyn Bridge in the middle of a New York City traffic jam, Ella goes into labor and gives birth to a son. They name him Brooklyn “Brooks” Borgman after the bridge which, to them, embodied the American “can-do” attitude they had come to love. Life wasn’t easy for the Borgman's, but they trust “the good Lord,” work hard and “get by with a little help from their friends” in the small town of Anomie, Kansas where they are forced to move after the depression. Henry becomes an airplane mechanic and Brooks starts spending lots of time with Dad at the hangar where he develops an aptitude for flying planes. Shortly before his 19th birthday, Brooks is drafted into the army during World War II. It soon becomes apparent that both the providence that ordered his parents’ lives and his own has been preparing him for his time in the service. Brooks quickly distinguishes himself as the best of his class and is pressed into dangerous duty. Against overwhelming odds, Brooks selflessly volunteers to put himself in harm’s way to aid a crucial mission, earning him the love of his fellow soldiers and the respect of his superiors. It will also win him the hearts and admiration of his countrymen but will he live to see it?

The War of Rebellion is over. The great expansion to the west has begun. It is frontier, not of just land, but of heart and spirit. Only the strongest survive. This is the saga of a town of individuals who refused to give up, their struggles chronicled, their joy and despair a written word. There is the doctor, new to the town, a man with a secret and a price on his head. There is the sheriff, a man who knows his best days are behind him. There is the blacksmith, a freed slave, who along with his wife seeks validation in a white world. There is the madam whose heart is as big as the west. There is the wife whose husband may be the devil himself. There is the friend who choses to be only that. There is the tomboy who captures the soul of a warrior. A town, new, and on the verge of legend. The place – Gold City.
