Remembering Norwood: Win Everett's Tales of Tyot
Long ago, when Norwood was only virgin forests and streams, the Neponset Indian tribe christened the region "Tyot"-a place of waters. The name lingered on the tongues of residents long after their home was renamed and the advent of railroads opened up the region once enclosed by rivers and lakes. As rugged farmhouses dotted the plains and Puritan spires rose above the trees, the sleepy Tyot blossomed into the bustling community of Norwood. Decades later, journalist Win Everett preserved Norwood's colorful history in his column "Tales of Tyot." With stories of haunted taverns and superstitious soldiers, influenza and the industrial age, Everett profiles the fascinating people who left their marks on the pages of Norwood history. Available for the first time in a single volume, these articles bring three centuries of history to life through the artful voice of Norwood's beloved storyteller. Book jacket.
