Welcome to French Louie.com
If you've heard about French Louie then you're probably someone who enjoys the outdoors and the good old days. If you haven't heard about him, he's the lovable hermit featured in Harvey Dunham's 1952 classic book, Adirondack French Louie -- Early Life in the North Woods.Its simply a great book that captures the spirit of the hardy woodsmen who labored to log, clear and settle some of the toughest terrain in the continent. Lots of great stories and laughs about the guides, trappers, lumberjacks and innkeepers, the real people who made a living in the great northern frontier that was the Adirondacks of the late 1800s.
