A Lighthouse Celebration

Jeremy D’Entremont, one of New England’s foremost maritime historians, continues his definitive series about the storms, shipwrecks, and heroic lighthouse keepers of the Maine coast. “The Lighthouses of Maine” is the fourth book in D’Entremont’s “Lighthouse Treasury” series, following volumes on Connecticut, Rhode Island and Massachusetts.

More than 60 lights are detailed here, from those at the New Hampshire border all the way to West Quoddy Light, which, despite its name, is the easternmost light in the U.S. Each chapter features a treasury of historic photos and the stories of the keepers, the storms they battled and the ships and lives they helped save.
