Received from the V.P. of Operations & Marketing for Singer Castle on Dark Island
is this unsolicited statement:
"All I can say is WOW! Very nicely done. I cannot imagine a better comprehensive coverage of the Castle that we all love. ... Thanks again for the fine job you did..."

"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."
Ian Coristine
(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 history ... Images of America books are an invaluable resource."
---New York Times
