Lighthouses of the Southern States is the classic guide to the most significant lighthouses in the Carolinas, Georgia, and Florida. Through stirring historic accounts and stunning color and archival photographs, the stories of more than thirty-five lighthouses come alive in vivid detail. Each light––from Bodie Island Light on the Outer Banks to the Cape Florida Light outside Miami––tells its own engrossing tale of survival. Discover the rich history behind these majestic sentinels, and learn more about visiting them.
