An Adirondack hermit's journals, decoded

Listen to this story
In 1946, the Adirondack hermit, Noah John Rondeau, wrote entries in his annual journal in a complicated code. Fifty years later a young man and an old man deciphered the symbols. William J. O'Hern uses the 1946 journal as the basis of his new book, Noah John Rondeau's Adirondack Wilderness Days, a Year with the Hermit of the Cold River Flow. Betsy Kepes has this review.
