Noah John Rondeau was an interesting character of contradictions. He loved people but even more loved being alone in the wilderness. He had only an eighth-grade education but developed his own secret code that kept his secrets long after his death.

Kelly and Christina discuss this interesting north country man, his life in the woods, his strange fame and the interesting legacy he left behind.

Episode is edited by Christina Knott. Intro music is "Nobody Calls It San Fran" by Coyote Hearing. Outro music is "The Papergirl" by The Whole Other.
