Join life-time St. Louisan Patrick John Kleaver in this UPDATED AND EXPANDED version of his book GROWING UP IN OLD NORTH ST. LOUIS. He reminisces about the good and the bad in the first nineteen years of his life when he lived in that historic St. Louis neighborhood from its heyday in the mid-1950s to its decline in the 1970s. From a detailed description of his house to the neighborhood shopping district (with stops at various neighbors and churches along the way), you'll feel like you're entering his life and walking with him on a personally guided tour

In this SECOND EDITION, (even FURTHER updated AND expanded in December 2020) he includes MORE anecdotes, a MORE detailed history of Old North St. Louis and its historic Catholic churches, MORE photographs (including rarely seen historic ones of streetscapes and church interiors), a MORE DETAILED quick side trip to two other neighborhoods bordering his, and totally UP-TO-DATE INFORMATION about the status of the people and buildings he mentions.
