Marking its 150th anniversary in 2008, the Point Betsie Lighthouse has been called one of the most-photographed lighthouses in the country. In pictures this lighthouse is impressive, but in person it's easy to understand why Point Betsie Lighthouse is beloved by photographers for its beauty and majestic location amid the sandy dunes just south of Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore. While this northern Michigan landmark is inspiring architecturally and a must-see tourist destination, it has also saved hundreds of lives over the years.A century and a half have passed since the Light-House Board announced a new coastal light on Lake Michigan's Point Betsie. Lighthouse keepers have come and gone, and the fate of Point Betsie was sometimes in doubt. Yet despite the inevitable changes, its guiding light still shines. This book presents the history of this treasured light and its life saving efforts.
