A history and survey of aids to navigation in the United States: from Old Boston Light to the development of Loran; from Alaska to Texas. "[...] fills a long-standing and conspicuous vacancy in the saga of Uncle Sam against the sea. 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. Sections : 1. Mariners' Guards and Guides; 2. New England, New York, New Jersey, and Delaware; 3. Southern and Gulf Shores; 4. The West Coast States; 5. Arctic Lights and Treasure Islands; 6.

Index. 8vo, illustrated card covers. "The village of Enniskillen, a sleepy cluster of a few dozen houses in New Brunswick’s Queens County, has never been invaded by a foreign power. But during the 1950s to 1970s, the village was ground zero for a different kind of offensive, this one launched by the American and Canadian military against its own people with the deadly dioxin Agent Orange. Between 1956 and 1984 the Canadian military and its private subcontractors sprayed more than 1 million litres of rainbow herbicides around New Brunswick. The American military was invited to test Agent Purple and other toxins on Canadian soil after the chemicals had been banned by the U.S. Congress. This is the story of a war coming home; a story of the military and economic currents that allowed Agent Orange to blow through trees and into rivers in New Brunswick. More than anything, it’s a story of soldiers, civilians and local residents who blew back against the government and companies who poisoned them." - from the back cover. Very good. 9.00
