Product Description

Beacons of safety shining inside the night, alerting sailors to dangers at sea, lighthouses have been a portion of the coastal landscape for an enormous quantity of years. The ideal young person's introduction, Lighthouses traces the history of these powerful beacons from the first known structure, built in Alexandria Egypt in 300 BC, by way of the introduction of the effective Fresnel lens, and up to today's fully automated behemoths. Stunning photographs by avid lighthouse photographer Philip Plisson bring these fascinating structures to life. Readers can also explore the occasionally harrowing job in the lighthouse keeper, both past and present. From the earliest towers, which burned coal and wood to generate fiery signals, to today's computer-automated structures, the world's vast network of lighthouses continues to offer a vital link to safety for males and women that travel at sea.
