Legendary Lighthouses: The Companion to the PBS Television Series Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Whether it's for their beauty, romance, or usefulness - or a combination of all three - most of us would admit to a fascination with lighthouses. Paralleling the highly-praised PBS travel documentary series Legendary Lighthouses, this companion book celebrates America's treasured coastal beacons and explores the nature of our love for them. Lavishly illustrated with color photographs, many of them taken during the filming of the television series, this book is a modern tribute not only to our rich lighthouse heritage, but also to the ideals and impulses that lighthouses continue to embody and inspire.

Book News Annotation:

Presents stories and photographs of lighthouses all over the United States, from the North Atlantic and Maine down to the South Atlantic, to California and the Pacific Northwest, and the Western Great Lakes. Contains 125 color photographs of the lighthouses, their geographical surroundings, and details of their lamps and structures. Recounts historical tales and legends, and interviews contemporary subjects, also discussing preservation efforts on behalf of lighthouses. No references.
