Sinopsis: In a bygone American era, shipping was crucial in both trade and travel. It was the lighthouse that allowed ships to arrive safely in port, despite rough waters, rocky coasts, and punishing weather. Beacons of safety and hope, these stalwart sentinels of the American coasts are still treasured today by mariners and landlubbers alike. LIGHTHOUSES captures the beauty and nostalgia of these lights in the storm. Breathtaking color photography from renowned photographer Laurence Parent reveals the strength and splendor of these coastal beacons. Lighthouse authority Elinor DeWire's fascinating history of United States lighthouses details the stories of both the sentinels and their keepers, from the Northeast coast to the Great Lakes, down to the South and the Gulf of Mexico, all the way to the Pacific shore.

Biografía del autor: Elinor De Wire, one of the most distinguished lighthouse historians in the USA, has been researching and photographing lighthouses for more than 25 years. She is the author of Lighthouses of the South"" and Lighthouses of the Mid-Atlantic Coast,"" both published by Voyageur Press. Elinore De Wire lives in Seabeck, Washington.
