From the Back Cover

Eastern Great Lakes Lighthouses is a fascinating guide to the most significant lighthouses on Lake Ontario, Erie, and Huron. Through stirring historic accounts and stunning color and archival photographs, the stories of more than sixty lighthouses come alive in vivid detail. Each light - from Thirty Mile Point Light on Lake Ontario to Imperial Towers on the Canadian side of Lake - tells its own engrossing tale of survival against the elements. Discover the rich history behind these majestic sentinels and learn more about visiting them. Inside you'll find practical information including: a regional map showing the location of each light; directions to the lights; details on access and visiting hours; advice on the best vantage points for viewing and picture-taking. (8 1/2 x 11, 96 pages, color photos, map)

Format: Paperback
Bruce Roberts may be the best lighthouse photographer working in America. Any of the books by him and his partner Ray Jones are well worth owning. They include great lighthouse photos, a little story from Jones about each one and directions as to how to get to them. The lighthouse lover could scarcely ask for more.

There are directions and other info for finding and visiting lighthouses. They do not always show all lights for a given area. The photos are all color. I own 3 of these books. There are not many other guide books out there so if you are looking for guide books these are good to have. Since there are so many books in this series I thought I'd help people find them easier. This is the series.

I have found this book very helpful in locating lighthouses in my backyard that I never knew existed. I have long been a fan of lighthouses, and this book has intensified my search to see as many of the lighthouses around my area as I can. I also like the fact the directions are given to make finding each lighthouse easier to find---with these directions, I should be able to find a lot more lighthouses in my own area, and not have to go traveling great distances to see one. Thanks for publishing such a great book!!!!!!!!!!!

The photgraphy is beautiful and the stories well written and informative. Directions to lighthouses are pretty good. I was disappointed that every light was not included. They actually only cover selected lighthouses. I have since found a real good book that covers all lighthouses in the eastern Great Lakes.
