The lighthouses of New England project more than lifesaving beams across treacherous expanses of water. They also project an aura of steadfastness, dependability, and safety--and deservedly so. This guide features descriptions and beautiful photographs of more than sixty lighthouses from Northern Maine to the Long Island Sound. Highlights >In the pounding surf, numbing cold, and full gale of a December storm in 1904, two keepers at Maine's Mount Desert Rock Light rescued the crew of an ocean tug that had run aground. >In the winter of 1850, the keeper of Maine's Owl's Head Light rescued and revived a couple who had been frozen under a blanket of ice aboard a shipwrecked schooner. >During the Hurricane of 1938, the keeper of the Marblehead Light in Massachusetts kept the lamp burning by running cables from his car battery to the tower. >In February 1918 keeper Charles Jennings of the Boston Light pushed his dory over ice and through freezing surf to pluck 24 half-frozen crewmen from the Navy ship Alacrity.
