Strewn across the Western Basin of Lake Erie, Ohio’s Lake Erie islands are often known as the “Vacationland of the Midwest†. This book provides a firsthand look at each of the islands, their varied histories, and their natural beauty, using words and original photography. Included in this book is a detailed look at some of the most popular Ohio islands to visit – Kelleys, Put-In-Bay/South Bass, and Middle Bass – as well as information on some of the lesser-known islands such as North Bass, Rattlesnake, Green, Gibraltar, and others.
