Read about surviving in the Great Depression, the baby boomer’s life in the suburbs, and what it was like for a kid to watch someone get shot in a gang-infested part of St. Louis. Jim Merkel’s Growing Up St. Louis is the result of more than 100 interviews with people of all ages, black and white, rich and poor. Between the stories are photos of kids from every period. Like no other book, Growing Up St. Louis tells what it was like to grow up in the Gateway City.
