Great Lakes Lighthouses Bright Lights, Dark Nights

Great Lakes Lighthouses Bright Lights, Dark Nights. On both sides of the American and Canadian border experience the beauty and rich history of lightkeeping on the Great Lakes. Elaborate shipping networks were created by early settlers because of the rugged rocks and vast forests of the Great lakes region. The remarkable stone, brick and wood lighthouses in this book were erected to light the night and guide lakefarers in their schooners, steamers, brigs, barques, and sloops. Many of these noble structures have fallen into disrepair or have been torn down in the name of progress, but the surviving lights have become monuments to an exciting period in our history and points of pilgrimage for millions.
