It blends the fascinating account of the evolution of devices that guide maritime traffic along our shores, on our rivers and the Great Lakes, into one fast-moving, colorful and informative story. It constitutes a heroic record of men and women who, until 1938, tendedthe lights afloat and ashore, and since then, of the snappy and alert youn gsters of the United States Coast Guard. As a vehicle for sea-stories, thisbook is unique in that it deals with the perils mariners meet, not in the deep, but in the shallow and reef-filled waters on storm-blown shores." - from the dj.
