Lighthouses have stood for centuries, warning ships away from hidden rocks and perilous outcroppings, allowing vital maritime trading and travel to continue unimpeded. Explore the evolution of these impressive structures, beginning in the seventeenth century with the first Eddystone lighthouse (the fourth version still stands today) through the mid-nineteenth century, with engaging tales of the struggles faced by the engineers and builders. Richly embellished with more than 350 detailed sketches, vintage photographs, floor plans, and blueprints, Lighthouse presents "an illuminating history of the world's coastal sentinels." (SM)
