Like the companion book to the first PBS LEGENDARY LIGHTHOUSES series, this lavishly illustrated volume celebrates America's treasured coastal beacons and explores the nature of our love for them. From Honolulu to the Aleutian Islands, from Galveston to Lake Erie, this book takes you to some of the most beautiful places in America and through the doors of beloved beacons that for generations have guarded our shores. Paralleling the second, all-new PBS series, LEGENDARY LIGHTHOUSES II, continues the journey along the lighthouse trail, picking up where the first volume ended and completing the dramatic story of America's lights. Stunning color photographs, many taken during filming of the television series, offer glimpses of the spectacular locations of the lights. These images, together with heroic tales, unpredictable storms, dramatic stories of solitude, and colorful personalities, bring to life each lighthouse, each landscape, and all the history that makes these towers true American treasures.

Legendary Lighthouses II

LEGENDARY LIGHTHOUSES II completes the dramatic story of America's lighthouses. The four programs travel to some extraordinary destinations in the United States: the rugged and dangerous coast of Alaska, the beaches and shorelines of Hawaii, the vast and beautiful eastern Great Lakes and the "hurricane alley" of the Gulf of Mexico. The series tells stories of solitude, heroism, daring rescues, deadly storms and a fascinating piece of American maritime history. As modern navigational equipment renders lighthouses obsolete, the series also explores the future of these historic structures. LEGENDARY LIGHTHOUSES II is populated by individuals who act as storytellers, people with a special connection to the lighthouse or the place where it sits. They share their passion and enthusiasm for these historic structures and locations.
