How good is the book:

"I have to say I think you did a really
outstanding job of your book. The background information you turned up
on Bourne, his business success and lifestyle as well as the wide
variety of interesting historical and contemporary images, make this a
thoroughly fascinating read. I also enjoy the way you share the
information through captions rather than a text heavy 'tome'. Well
done! Very well done."
(The acclaimed Mr. Coristine is currently the premier photographer of the scenic Thousand Islands)
"I'm blown away with your book!! It is great!!
I have thoroughly enjoyed the entire book, you
have some fabulous pictures and history there..."
---Marilyn Hutchinson, of Corbin's River Heritage fame, Clayton NY.
(The late Les Corbin was called "The Dean" of Thousand Islands photography during the B&W era)
"For readers with a more localized interest in
... Images of America books are an invaluable resource."
---New York Times
