Description
Lighthouses not only guide ships to safety, they conjure up romantic images of solitude and solace. Through breathtaking color photographs of the lighthouses and their surroundings, explore the history and development of these captivating structures throughout the world. Look back to the light towers of antiquity, and then discover beautiful examples that brightened the coastlines in the British Isles, United States, Canada, and Caribbean. Find out about the different lighting systems, and the various types of towers. Meet the people who played a major role in the architectural and technological progress of these aids to navigation, and take a nostalgic look at the keepers, those who devoted their lives to the daily maintenance and operation of the lighthouse--sometimes even in the face of great danger.
