    If you've heard about French Louie then you're probably someone who enjoys the Adirondacks and wonders about life in "the good old days" in the north woods. If you haven't, please allow us to introduce you!

     Louis "French Louie" Seymour was the lovable hermit featured in Harvey Dunham's 1952 classic book, Adirondack French Louie -- Early Life in the North Woods. It's a great book that, by telling Louie's fascinating life story, also relates the stories of the hardy lumberjacks, guides, trappers, hunters and inn keepers that managed to thrive in the Southern Adirondacks in the late 1800's.

     Through Louie's occupations, antics and adventures an informal history of the region is revealed, along with hilarious anecdotes about Louie's friends, bosses and occasional enemies.

     What was it like to live the life of a woodsman and lumberjack in the great northern frontier? You'll find out in the book Adirondack French Louie -- Early Life in the North Woods!

     If you've already read Adirondack French Louie, then there's another great book you might be interested in. Adirondack Adventures -- Bob Gillespie and Harvey Dunham on French Louie's Trail is a book that follows the adventures of Harvey Dunham (the author of Adirondack French Louie) and his friend Bob Gillespie as they trek into the Adirondacks as young men looking for adventure only to stumble into a lifelong passion for the place, the characters who settled there and their history.

     We're glad you came to visit and hope you enjoy you're stay!
