Lighthouse authority Elinor De Wire presents the Southern beacons from the Outer Banks of North Carolina to Pensacola, Florida and salutes the courageous men and women who have tended them. Lighthouses of the South looks back at a bygone era of great storms, shipwrecks, and rescues; perilous fog and natural disasters; and the sequestered lives of lighthouse keepers at remote outposts along the sea.In Lighthouses of the South, readers will learn the history of such popular lighthouses as Cape Florida, Tybee Island, Cape Hatteras, Ocracoke, and Cape Henry. De Wire's lively stories are accented by Daniel Dempster's outstanding four-color photographs of lighthouses, interiors, and lenses. It also includes a bibliography and an appendix that lists all lighthouses of the Southeast Coast.
