9781908308252: The Lightkeeper: A Memoir

Gerald Butler was one of Ireland's last lightkeepers. Until they were fully automated in the 1990s, Gerald spent over 21 years tending to many lighthouses around the coast of Ireland. In The Lightkeeper he recalls with passion the thrills, trials, tragedies, triumphs, and dangers of serving on lighthouses. Throughout his captivating story, he recollects the traumas of crews battling for their lives on mountainous seas, in horrendous, stormy conditions. An affectionate portrayal of a different era, The Lightkeeper gives a unique insight into the lives and characters of lighthouse keepers, their families, and the sea-faring community.
