Adirondack French Louie
Adirondack French Louie: Early Life in the North Woods
By Harvey L. Dunham
Although numerous books have been written about the Adirondacks and Adirondackers, not very many have become regional classics. Early authors such as John Todd, Charles Fenno Hoffman, Jeptha R. Simms, S.H. Hammond, J.T. Headley, Alfred B. Street, William H.H. Murray, and Verplanck Colvin earned well-deserved popularity in their day and their literary output still exerts a potent appeal more than a century later. One more volume is entitled to consideration as top-bracket upstate literature... and that is Adirondack French Louie by the late Harvey L. Dunham of Utica.
