Lightships of the United States of America, Volume III - Gulf, Western, Great Lakes
by Thomas Schoenewolff
The loss of one of the greatest treasures of the past, lightships, is happening at an alarming rate. Lightships of the United States of America is a collection of data from various websites and sources, outlining the technical specifications and historical information about each lightship. This would be the bible of lightships and the most complete reference of each lightship and its history.
With hundreds of photos of these lost icons, the forces of nature, lack of funds, and resources to preserve these treasures is of great concern. Our children will lose the ability to see and understand what these beacons of the sea contributed to the maritime history of the world.(2010, paperback, 188 pages)
