Additional Information

The sheer beauty of the elegant, lonely lighthouses along our shores—and their unspoiled, scenic natural settings—has captivated our collective imagination. More than simply picturesque, the lighthouse has become an enduring symbol of salvation, fortitude, and heroic folklore.

The Ultimate Book of Lighthouses is a comprehensive and fascinating work, where you’ll discover:

- Profiles of every kind of lighthouse, from the boldly striped 196-foot tower overlooking the notorious Diamond Shoals off Cape Hatteras, North Carolina, to the many octagonal and pyramidal beacons built to guide sailors into North American harbors

- Fascinating information about lightships, foghorns, and modest beacons

- Many remarkable engineering techniques used in constructing lighthouses

- Historical examples of our ancestors’ courageous efforts to guide mariners through treacherous seas and storms

- Scores of stunning full-color photographs, and more!

A celebration of one of America’s purest landmarks, The Ultimate Book of Lighthouses is a must-have for any home.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews

This is an excellent book on lighthouses. It is detailed, with great history of the lighthouses, and the photography is excellent. The price is great for the hardcover, large book this is. I would recommend it to anyone wanting to seek information on lighthouses, or just a lover of them.
Our original copy of this book was ruined by a flood, but the lighthouse fancier in the house demanded that we replace it. It's THAT good, including lots of pictures and nicely worded text.
Loved it. The book is filled with gorgeous photographs and interesting facts. It was hard to put it down. I liked how they seperated the chapters by the different classes of lights (beach lights, island lights, harbor lights, etc..) Recommended for any lighthouse fan.
