Life With Noah
Life With Noah: Stories and Adventures if Richard Smith with Noah John Rondeau
By William J. O'Hern
Originally published in 1997, this Adirondack classic features Richard Smith's story as he told it to William J. O'Hern in his home, on the trail, at his rustic camp called Singing Pines, and wherever they chanced to get together. Life With Noah describes a vanished way of life and tells the friendship between Richard and the Adirondacks' last hermit, Noah John Rondeau. Through the reminiscences of Richard and his friends, O'hern has reconstructed Smith's life in the Cold River-Duck Hole Country where he went to trap, hunt, fish, and live in his own way.
