About the book:
While living far from civilization at "Cold River City Population one," Noah John Rondeau, the
original Adirondack Hermit, wrote daily diary entries to document his
experience. To conceal incriminating information from "snooping game
protectors" he developed an enigmatic code that was said to resemble the
"footprints of an inebriated hen." In 1946, Rondeau wrote his entire
journal in code, making it the most mysterious of all. Attempts to break
the code all ended in failure until David Greene discovered a key and
shared his findings with author William J. O'Hern.
A Sample of Noah's Code
Noah John Rondeau's Adirondack
Wilderness Days---A Year with the Hermit of Cold River Flow, tells the
story of how the code was broken and then reveals the real story of a
fun-loving hermit thriving in the wilderness. In addition to Rondeau's
decoded journal entries, letters, photographs and reminiscences from
friends who visited him complete the story of the misunderstood recluse.
Why did Noah create the code? What
secrets does it contain? Learn the answers in
over 135 vintage photographs and illustrations!
