Nov 28, 2007 — Artist, writer and historian Caperton Tissot and her husband visited the Adirondacks for nearly 20 years before finally settling in Saranac Lake five years ago to be closer to family. She says she instantly fell in love with local history and culture. Her new book, History Between the Lines, Women's Lives and Saranac Lake Customs, is not about people of great power or privilege. It's filled with ordinary stories that trace what she calls Saranac Lake's "spirit of goodwill" from the mid-19th century to the present. The 16 profiles, based on interviews with women and their families, illustrate the important role women play in carrying on traditions that define the unusual character of a small town. Todd Moe spoke with Capterton Tissot about her book.
