Photographs of one hundred lighthouses have been selected for their beauty, clarity of architectural depiction, geographic distribution, and representation of types. Twenty American states are represented: Michigan, 15; Wisconsin, 9; California, 8; Florida, 7; Oregon, North Carolina, and Maine, 5 each; Minnesota, 4; New York, 3; Massachusetts and Ohio, 2 each; and Pennsylvania, Virginia, Alaska, Washington, Illinois, New Jersey, South Carolina, and Rhode Island, 1 each. These group by coast into 33 Great Lakes, 25 Atlantic, and 15 Pacific U.S. lighthouses. Half the U.S. lighthouses shown are conical; a fifth are square; a tenth are octagonal; a tenth are cylindrical; and one example each is hexagonal and nonagonal. Nine extra-U.S. lighthouses are also included for comparison's sake. Julie Stetzko Taff provides illuminating captions.

With thousands of islands adrift in cerulean waters and a long, labyrinthine coastline, Greeks have always traveled liquid highways. They built the world's first documented lighthouse at the Mediterranean port of Alexandria more than two-thousand years ago, and since that time countless sentinels have risen and fallen on Greek shores. Weather, warfare, erosion, and earthquakes have reduced some to rubble, but more than 100 traditional stone lighthouses still stand in Greece today—old sentries keeping watch over every vessel, large or small, from freighters and tankers and cruise ships to fishermen and ferries. Their romance, beauty, and history are captured in this handy guidebook. Beguiling images, fascinating histories, and helpful travel information will guide you to these beloved seamarks in the land of Hellene.
