This book is an excellent source of American Lighthouses. It gives a brief description of each light, and whether you can visit it. It is divided by state which is very helpful. We have visited over 250 lighthouses. This will assist us in finding the rest!

This is an excellent guide to lighthouses across the United States! We have visited lighthouses from Cape Hatteras north to Massachusetts, across the Great Lakes, and of course the Pacific Northwest (Point No Point Lighthouse and West Point Lighthouse in western Washington are favorites) as well as a few down the west coast as far south as the old Point Loma Light. I wish we would have had Joe Follansbee's book years ago! His "Fyddeye Guide to America's Lighthouses" introduces the reader to lighthouses by region, then by state, in an orderly manner which makes them easy to find. Not only that, he includes lightships and life-saving stations as well as lighthouse and maritime festivals across the country. If you find something he might have missed, drop him a line via his website at [...] and he'll update the website and the next edition of the book. All in all, this is a great guidebook and well worth your time if you are even remotely interested in lighthouses. When we travel now, this book goes with us!

I love this book! I'm a serious lighthouse fan, and this book lists all the lighthouses in the US, with brief information about their history, location, and whether or not you can visit. Being new the area where I'm living, I've used it to explore some of the wonderful lighthouses on our Pacific coast, and it makes me want to go on a major tour, marking them all off as I go. The book is current, clear, and handy. I've found myself reading about lighthouses around the country, imagining some of their history and the stories they could tell. Whether you're a lighthouse fan or not, you'll find this a great book.

I purchased a quantity of these guides for sale in a bookstore affiliated with the Assateague Lighthouse. I am still trying to get over the inaccuracies and inconsistencies in just one listing. Being most familiar with the history of the Assateague Lighthouse, you can imagine my dismay when this "guide" informed me that the lighthouse in question was built in 1967 and was automated in 1965 (How is that even possible? In FACT, the construction on the lighthouse was started in 1860 and due to a delay caused by the Civil War, it was not completed till 1867. This is just the first of many incorrect statements in just ONE listing. I invite all lighthouse fans to check for other inaccuracies and do a public service by reviewing here. It is a shame, as this is an attractive book, but some fact checking and proofreading would have gone a long way to making it useful. Only awarded one star since I cannot give zero.
