French LouieAdirondack French Louie - Early Life in the North Woods
by Harvey Dunham

Harvey Dunham's Adirondack French Louie has become an Adirondack classic.
Louie Seymour was the prototype of all the Adirondack woodsman - a hunter-trapper- fisherman - lumberman and on a few days a year when he brought his furs into Newton's Corners (now Speculator), a happy, drunk. Dunham provides an informal history of the southern Adirondacks and introduces us to the hearty souls who settled the region. The spirit of the wild, virgin Adirondacks are captured in a way that few other contemporary writers have.
Adirondack French Louie belongs on everyone's Americana bookshelf.

Right: Louis "French Louie" Seymour taken about 1900
