Lighthouses and Lifeboats on the Redwood Coast is a result of nearly 10 years of careful research by 2 respected maritime historians -- Ralph Shanks, Jr. and Janetta Thomspon Shanks. The Shanks have spent a decade interviewing the last of America's lighthouse keepers and surfmen, all distinguished veterans in their 70s, 80s, and 90s. Within a frame work of high-quality, historical research, some of the most fascinating tales in maritime history are told for the first time: a crewless Coast Guard boat, a mysterious force in a darkened lighthouse, and an enemy submarine's visit to a lighthouse.
