Reissue of one of Edward Rowe Snow's most enduring classics. First published in 1945, it relates the histories of over fifty of the region's lighthouses in rich detail. Snow gives special emphasis to the story of heroine Abbie Burgess at Maine's Matinicus Rock Light, to the rich histories of Boston Light and Minot's Ledge Light. Modern-day lighthouse expert Jeremy D'Entremont has provided extensive annotations to Snow's chapters, bringing the information about each lighthouse up to date.

Author, historian, and adventurer Edward Snow was born in Winthrop, Massachusetts. Descended from a long line of sea captains, he spent several years of his early life sailing around the world. A prolific writer, Snow wrote a number of books about New England and the sea, including such works as The Islands of Boston Harbor (1935), Ghost, Gales, and Gold (1972), and Pirates, Shipwrecks, and Historic Chronicles (1981). The New York Times called Snow "just about the best chronicler of the days of sail."
