Originally published in 1963 by The John Day Company. True life dramas of lighthouses and lightships. From the cover: “To the seafarer, one of the most re- assuring of all sights is the white light of a tower or lightship flashing its familiar signal to tell him where he is and where danger lies. And to the landlubber, some of the most exciting and romantic of sea tales are connected with lighthouses and lightships. Here are more than a dozen of them from the vivid pen of Warren Armstrong, all true, many of them the product of first-hand research. They are stories of rescue and disaster, endurance and fear, voodoo and mystery, courage and romantic love.”
