Abstract:

From Grand Manaan to Mount Desert to the Isles of Shoals on the New Hampshire border, sixty-eight light-houses stand along the coast of Maine and her rivers. In his conversational way, Bill Caldwell leads his readers on an historical tour of all the Maine lighthouses. In Bill's hands the legends, lore, and history of the impressive signals come to life. Black and white photos or drawings of individual light-houses in many of the sections add to the experience. Maine's lighthouses are symbolic of her proud maritime heritage and of a way of life that has long passed. Who better to pass on the tra.
