Format: Paperback
Lighthouse Island : Our Family Escape is a well written description Baker's purchase and renovation of Henry Island, Nova Scotia. He was able to realize his dream of owning a lighthouse, and in this book he shares that dream with the reader. Rather than turning it into a posh rich man's retreat, he renovated it in keeping with the history and area. He has created a wonderful place to relax and "get away from it all" for his family. I highly recommend it for those who love the sea and lighthouses.

Format: Paperback
While no man lives on an island, Bill Baker-network steward and most recently PBS captain-resides on one as often as possible. Fascinated with lighthouses, Baker acquired the perfect 150-acre rustic retreat off the coast of Nova Scotia and rebuilt the deteriorating structures to their former austere greatness. Charming family pictures and stories help share Baker's dream come true. Bill, make room; the staff of Writers Notes is coming to visit.

Phony Public Broadcasting Liberal writes a compelling tale of how he could afford to buy his own island, of course, it's just a "fixer-upper." Wonder how much of his salary comes out of tax dollars?
