Lighthouses constantly fascinate us.We look at them as links to a romantic past, as sentinels of our shores. Organizations have grown up to protect them, admirers have built their own private lighthouses, and millions of people visit the public ones each year.And nowhere is there more variety, more history, and more beauty than along the Massachusetts shores of Cape Cod and the islands of Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket. As lighthouse expert Jeremy D'Entremont writes, “Along with their visual appeal, the lighthouses of the Cape and Islands have a human and technological history that's rich as a bowl of creamy clam chowder.” Seen through the lens of Alison Shaw, the lighthouses take on a life of their own—caught in the reflection of the water they face, their lights shining against a night sky, their windows ablaze with life.Lay this book on your coffee table or toss it into your backpack to use as a guide when you go off to discover the joys of lighthouse viewing.About the Author:
