This is both an exciting history and a tour guide, illustrating the fascinating development of the lighthouses of Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut, and Long Island. Marcus and Kelly explain and show the technological evolution of lighthouses, the development of lights and lenses, the architecture of lighthouses, their construction and maintenance on remote sites, the life of the Lighthouse Service keepers, and the movement today to preserve and restore lights. Also included are excerpts from original logs and a descriptive tour of the last manned lighthouse in America, Boston Light, with its three resident Coast Guardsmen and their dog. The stunning photography includes intriguing images of lights in all kinds of weather -- plus photographs that bring readers inside the structures, showing the curling stairways, lenses, the keeper's homes, and more. A comprehensive appendix lists all the current New England lighthouses. 160pp.
