Product Description

California's Lighthouses: Standing Tall Through Time

When the Gold Rush drew thousands of ships to California, no lighthouses warned of the coast's perils, and scores were wrecked. California's Lighthouses documents the earliest California lights, and features histories and reminiscences of life at several light stations. Pairs of photographs of many lighthouses taken fifty years apart show time's effects on these sentinels of the coast.
