Lighting the Bay: Tales of Chesapeake Lighthouses Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From the beginning it was a struggle to light the Chesapeake. Its soft, undulating bottom presented a different set of problems from those faced along the rocky shores of New England. The Chesapeake's shores shifted before the winds, tides, and hurricanes that plagued the 200-mile-long estuary, and so did the towers of the Chesapeake. On land, erosion was the silent menace; on the water, it was ice.<P>Lighting the Bay documents the dramatic events that surrounded the difficult job of lighting the Chesapeake and manning the lighthouses. With more than 100 attractive color photographs complemented by an informative historical narration, Pat Vojtech communicates both facts and the human saga of life as it was on the lighthouses.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 183-187) and index.
