Overview
This is a story of a boy growing into manhood with an artist, craftsman, wooden sailboat-building father and a poet/writer mother making and procreating the beat scenes from New York to New Orleans, to Mexico City to the Mayan Indians in Yucatan, to Florida, to San Francisco (when Herb Caen called them and their friends "Beatniks"), to Puerto Vallarta before Richard and Liz, and 1960 Laguna Beach, Venice Beach, and other places. Their life was improvisational, like a Charlie Parker solo, with Thoreau-like simplicity, yet seldom secluded. They never had a telephone, a television, or a car. This was a chosen lifestyle in order to be free from the "square" world much of America had been brainwashed into accepting. This book is about a real-life experiment in Truth, uniquely creating a richness of experiences and perceptions, giving a true meaning to being American, and the sacrifices of the Great Generation of which the "Krohns" are an important part. Original poems inspired by the memories and adventures of Pat's childhood are sprinkled throughout this delightful narrative.
