First Sentence
Lighthouses have long had a strong appeal to Americans, an attraction that becomes more intense as time passes-fueled no doubt by the fact that our historic lights are being automated and in many cases replaced. Read the first page

Format: Paperback
While there are other guides to American lighthouses, F. Ross Holland has presented the history behind most of the lighthouses he describes in a state-by-state guide. Perhaps more than half of the photos show the lighthouses in 'olden times' (with all photos in black & white.) (See his other book "Lighthouses" for beautiful color photos.)
While this book doesn't contain driving instructions or location details, it is an important book on the subject. Recommended for anyone wanting to know the story behind the lighthouse.

Format: Paperback
Holland's book is the best available for those who plan to visit American lighthouses. It is the most comprensive guide available, featuring directions to each lighthouse and a little blurb about each one. What it does not have is great pictures. Most are quite small and all are in black and white.
