“Lighthouses of America is a splendid and diverse pictorial collection of the American ‘castles’ guarding our coasts. In addition to nearly 150 breathtaking photographs, Tom Beard (Editor-in-Chief) and Tom Thompson (Graphics Editor), in conjunction with the United States Lighthouse Society, accomplished a masterful job compiling a treasure trove of historical and often humorous tidbits. The book educates and delights the reader and leaves him/her hungry to discover more.”
Lighthouses of America, published in association with the U.S. Lighthouse Society, is a beautiful 176 page, hardcover book featuring stunning photographs of lighthouses across the country taken by Society photographers.
