“New England Lighthouses: Famous Shipwrecks, Rescues & Other Tales”
Explore and learn about the lighthouses of New England through the 36 stories of shipwrecks, daring rescues, and even paranormal activity.
Atglen P.A. — Immerse yourself in New England’s maritime history through true tales of historic shipwrecks and heroic rescues. From Connecticut to Maine, meet the special individuals who helped those in peril. Learn about the disasters that led to the pioneering of travel safety and the formation of our current Coast Guard. As told by the people who witnessed these incredible and often life-changing events, stories tell also of the Flying Santa, miracle baby rescues, and paranormal activity. Amusing accounts from one of the last surviving lighthouse keepers also provide an indelible look at life in and around the lighthouses. With an appendix of lighthouses that can be viewed by boat and a glossary of Mariner terms, this is a great resource for historians, maritime enthusiasts, and a guide for tourists and local residents alike. There’s something for everyone in this photographic look at New England’s lighthouses.
Allan Wood has been a New England lighthouse enthusiast, published photographer, and educator for over 25 years. He lives near the New Hampshire seacoast.
