What’s it like to be and Island Girl? Fifth-generation Islander Christie Ontko shares her thoughts and dreams, her pet peeves and admiration for the island she has called home for more than 40 years. A former teacher and columnist for the island’s newspaper, The Put-in-Bay Gazette, Christie is the owner and developer of OntkOrganix, a line of products inspired by one of her great-grandmother’s healing remedies.
Through Christie’s insights, the reader gains an appreciation for this little Lake Erie island (officially South Bass Island, but commonly known as Put-in-Bay) in a way usually understood only by locals. Some poignant and some humorous, each chapter reveals a snippet of her life growing upon this remote piece of land.
