I found your beautiful book, "The very best of Ian Coristine's 1000 Islands" in the Clayton cottage I rent every August. As a river rat from the 1960s, living on my parents' boat on Calumet Island every summer, lifeguarding during the day at the then new Can-Am pool in Clayton and the public beach in Alex Bay, I love your photos and feel for the River. Thank you!

My family and I grew up in Ogdensburg and moved to Saratoga Springs, NY 15 years ago. I am in New York City now and far from the quaint summer waves of the St. Lawrence.
We still have a camp on the river and are fortunate to visit once or twice a year. In between visits your books are our welcomed escape on cool fall nights and freezing winter mornings when we yearn for the river the most.
You have a gift to subtly celebrate a river we all love so much.
With many thanks on a crisp fall night

A truly remarkable display of natural beauty! I have been displaying this book to my friends and they are in awe at what they are seeing. Many of these people have been around the world; and with the Thousand Islands, they are impressed. This book and its subsequent follow ups will put the Thousand Islands on the map where it belongs.
