Synopsis:

The sheer beauty of the elegant, lonely lighthouses along our shores - and their unspoiled, scenic natural settings - has captivated our collective imagination.

The Ultimate Book of Lighthouses is a panoramic, lavishly illustrated history of these legendary buildings and celebrates the rich heritage of our ancestors' courageous efforts to grade manners through treacherous seas and storms.
