Lonz of Middle Bass is a unique book, particularly in view of the fact that it covers not only the obvious story of George Lonz and his wife, Fannie, but effectively chronicles the history of Middle Bass Island from the earliest explorations of Champlain in 1545 through the mid-nineteenth century when the island, as it is known today, began to emerge. Mr. Barr, from the grandstand of 21 years of being "summer people," was intrigued with the island story from the beginning of his sojourn.
