Summary
"Of the over four dozen lighthouse that once dotted the jagged shoreline of North Carolina, only nine still stand, watching over 300 miles of coast. These remaining beacons, though technically obsolete, are cherished monuments of North Carolina history. Instead of warning ships to safer waters, their presence now draws thousands of visitors each year, from historians to tourists. With this book, co-founders of the Outer Banks Lighthouse Society Cheryl Shelton-Roberts and Bruce Roberts provide a well-researched, heavily illustrated, and human-centered history of these towering structures"--
