Ian Coristine's "One in a Thousand"for the iPad


 Ian Coristine's sixth book is an interactive eBook for iPad, titled One in a Thousand.

Reminiscent of The Olive Farm, A Year in Provence and Under the Tuscan Sun, the memoir was co-written with Donna Walsh Inglehart (Grindstone, Breaking the Ring). 

One in a Thousand describes the challenges of acquiring Raleigh Island, the restoration of an abandoned cottage, and his adventures in the air and on the water as he immersed himself in a new, unexpected career.

Produced by McLellan Interactive Publishing, it includes an 85,000-word text set in a beautiful layout, videos of his flying adventures, nature sounds from the River an interactive map with hundreds of his best images embedded in the text, in galleries and in automated slideshows set to unpublished instrumental tracks from Great Lake Swimmers.

One, highly rated in Apple’s iPad App Store, showcases an entirely new form of storytelling. It was awarded the 2012 MarCom Award, selected from over 6,000 entries submitted from around the world, garnering the highest possible praise: "Every once in a while an entry comes across the judging table that totally enthralls us. We quickly forget where we are and what we are doing. We become spectators, not judges. Such was the case with an eBook app called One in a Thousand."
