Item description for Levi Dust (Stories from the Kerry Patch) by Steven J. Givens & Lorraine Hoekel...

In a simple chapter book set in the Irish immigrant neighborhood in St. Louis in the 1850s, 10-year-old twins Annie and William O'Shaughnessy disobey their parents and wander off to explore the riverfront. They soon find themselves lost, hungry, cold, and wet in the scary streets. They are rescued by an old bell ringer, Levi Dust, a character based on an actual historical figure who was hired by the city to find lost and missing children. As Levi Dust leads the twins home, he tells them his story. The telling is purposive, and the small line drawings have an old-fashioned cuteness, but children will relate to the simple historical adventure, even if there is never the slightest doubt that the twins will make it safely home.

Publishers Description
Willam and Annie O'Shaughnessy become lost in 1850's St. Louis. They think Levi Dust is a crazy, perhaps dangerous man, but can he help them?
