9780962303302: Bear Island reflections, Lake Winnipesaukee, New Hampshire

The second largest of Lake Winnipesaukee's 274 island, Bear Island is situated within the town of Meredith, New Hampshire, less than half a mile from mainland at its nearest point, but not connected by any bridge. Nearly three miles long and up to 3/4 of a mile wide, it is part of lands granted by England to John Mason as early as 1622. The story of how Bear Island got its name comes from an early Boston Globe article, which recounts reminiscences of James Hersey, the man delegated to officially survey and name the islands granted to Governor John Wentworth and those associated with him before the Revolutionary War. This book is a nice history of the island with many illustrations (vintage photographs) and a map.
