Cracking a hermit's secret code

Listen to this story
Adirondack hermit Noah John Rondeau kept extensive journals of daily life in the wilderness. But much of it was written in code. Todd Moe talks with Dave Greene, who cracked Rondeau's coded memoirs. Greene will give a public presentation on breaking Noah John's code in North Creek on Saturday night.

Donations will be accepted for ALAP, a partnership of Protect the Adirondacks with the Adirondack Watershed Institute of Paul Smiths.
