About this title

Synopsis:

Immerse yourself in New England's maritime history through tales of historic shipwrecks and heroic rescues that occurred near or at its lighthouses. From Connecticut to Maine, meet the special individuals who helped those in peril. Learn about the disasters that led to the pioneering of travel safety. As told by the people who witnessed these incredible and often life-changing events, stories tell also of the Flying Santa, miracle baby rescues, and paranormal activity. Amusing accounts from one of the last surviving lighthouse keepers also provide an indelible look at life in and around the lighthouses. With an appendix of lighthouses that can be viewed by boat and a glossary of Mariner terms, this is a great resource for historians, maritime enthusiasts, and a guide for tourists and local residents alike. There s something for everyone in this photographic look at New England s lighthouses.

About the Author:

Allan Wood has been a New England lighthouse enthusiast, published photographer, and educator for over 25 years. As a college Professor, he has been teaching courses in photography, digital media, and business for the past 16 years in New Hampshire. Currently Allan is enjoying working on independent projects, still as a local college professor, and in researching and learning about New England's history. He has also completed a self-imposed project in photographing all of the 175 lighthouses in New England, created a New England lighthouse tourism website, and continues to photograph lighthouses and surrounding vistas along New England's rugged coastline. Allan's heritage in New England dates back to the times of the Pilgrims in Massachusetts. As a lighthouse enthusiast, creating this book of historic lighthouse stories was an extension of his enjoyment in researching about New England's rich history, and his occupation as an educator and photographer to provide insight to the reader on some of the historic accounts that occurred along New England's coastal communities. Allan lives near the New Hampshire seacoast with his wife Christine, two boys Bryan and Steven, and their dog Spot.
