Robert C. Bofsheverabout this book: Ninety miles from NYC are the Catskill Mountains, also referred to as The Borscht belt. It was during the 1940’s –1960’s, when predominantly Jewish families spent summer vacation in the Catskill Mountains, getting away from the oppressive heat of the city. Some stayed in any of the hundreds of hotels or thousands of Bungalow colonies in Orange, Ulster or Sullivan counties.
Here young city kids got to experience the wonderments of the mountains: exploring mysterious dark forests, picked wild blueberries and savored the sweet juicy taste. Some swam in pools while many were luckily to swim in rushing ice-cold streams. For many there was that first kiss and the sexual excitement as they explored love. Perhaps it was that first stolen cigarette or alcohol you stole from your parent’s hidden location.
Adults made friendships which remained for years. Some summer romances developed into marriage, and they continued to bring their families back to experience the same summers.
My family has one of the Bungalow colonies, called Makowskys Cottage Colony. It was started by my grandmother as a small farm in 1922. Today over a 100 plus bungalows are spread-out over 150 acres still surrounded with mysterious forests.
‘Rainbow Over White Rock’ will take you back to that era, and bring back memories of your childhood, regardless of where it was spent. Everyone has experienced that first kiss, and so many other firsts.
I was born in the Catskills and have spent my years growing up there during summer and many happy holidays and weekends with my cousins, living there all year long.
I and so many summer friends all have stories of their summer experiences there. I spent about a year listening to their experiences and put this heartwarming story together.
The cover is one of my oil paintings of the lake on the property which I helped dig, with my uncle and father. The white rock is at the deep end, where many fished, and as you read this story, you will discover the rock was a very special place.
Memories are forever. Reading Rainbow Over White Rock, will surely bring you back to childhood.
