Patty Mondore


Gold-Mountain will be celebrating its tenth season of Thousand Islands inspirational multi-media products with the release of Patty’s new book, River-Lations: Inspirational Stories and Photos from the Thousand Islands. River-Lations is a collection of 36 of Patty’s favorite articles and photos from her column featured in the Thousand Islands Sun Vacationer. It also includes several previously unpublished stories and photos. Each chapter is accompanied by one of Patty’s River photos.
Patty’s weekly River-Lations column in the Thousand Islands Sun has been inspiring the summer guests and year-round residents with her River-related stories and breathtaking photography for several years now. It has been almost 10 years since she submitted her first inspirational article for the Alexandria Bay newspaper and has continued to be a contributing author and photographer for the paper’s summer publication, The Vacationer throughout the summer months. In recent years she started calling her almost weekly summer column “River-Lations”. Her new book by the same name is a collection of some of her favorite River stories and photographs adapted from her River-Lations columns. 


River-Lations: Inspirational Stories and Photos from the Thousand Islands will retail for $13.99 and will be available in stores throughout the Thousand Islands. Those who wish to reserve a copy in advance may do so through the Gold-Mountain website at
