I spent nearly ten years living in this working class town twenty miles south of Boston, Mass. The place is full of history, though you have to lift the vinyl siding of the houses to find it. Brockton was the shoe manufacturing capital of the world until about 1940. Sacco and Vanzetti were arrested here; Brockton was the first city lighted by Edison, and the great inventor had one of his most important labs here.
Brockton Tales is a collection of historically positioned stories that spans the time before the founding of the city, in the 1860's, to the 1990's. Follow Transcendentalists, rich and corrupt industry magnates, murderers, mad scientists, working class stiffs and lovers as they pursue the American dream in a working class town.
