BY THE TIME Christopher Shaw retired from teaching at Middlebury College in 2018, he had written three books about the Adirondacks, a region he has forged deep, lifelong connections with. This fall he published one of those books, a novel called “The Power Line,” which explores the region’s characters and landscape as it tries to get to the bottom of an alleged shootout between bootleggers in 1929.
