Synopsis: Who doesn't remember a special aunt's inspiring stories of growing up during the Great Depression? or the fabled tales of Great Grandpa battling forest fires as a young man? We're always sorry we didn't record their words, didn't write their stories down in that special way they had of telling them. Braddock's True Gold does just that. Skillfully woven tales excerpted from the oral histories of over 50 long-time residents capture the essences of 20th-century life in the heart of Fairrfax County, Virginia - from farm life with gravel roads and cinder-spewing trains of the 1930s to a 1960s battle to keep Burke from becoming Burke International Airport. Recollections of men and women who grew up here, fought wars and fought the government, won spelling bees and won elections. Neighbors who worked together to make life better, creating a sense of community you'll want to make your own.
