28 BAKER, Bill Lighthouse Island : Our Family Escape. First Edition
Rudder Finn Press, New York, 2004, ISBN:1932646027 
BAKER, Bill. Lighthouse Island : Our Family Escape. Photographs and Text byBill Baker. (New York) : Rudder Finn Press, (2004). First Printing. Pp. (8 ),7-99,(1). Illustrated. Oblong 8vo, photo-illustrated cardcovers. With over 190 photos. "In keeping with their noble purpose and bold design, lighthouses are meant to illuminate and reveal. But no amount of radiance from thebrilliant beacon atop Henry Island can shed light on the island's distant past, or the identity of the 'Henry' for whom it was named. Henry Island's location off Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia, for centuries an important maritime region, does, however, suggest that it has enjoyed a rich and fascinating history. Bill Baker, known widely for his work at Thirteen/WNET, New York, is the proud and enthusiastic owner of Henry Island, Nova Scotia - a 150-acre island with its beautiful 100-year-old, wooden, octagonal lighthouse. Although lights stood on the island since the mid-nineteenth century, the present lighthouse was constructed in 1902. The lighthouse remains the property of the Canadian Coast Guard, but Baker is the keeper, and he and his family have restored the once dilapidated light to its glory. In its heyday, the original rotating kerosene beacon could be seen for twenty-two miles. It served as a key aid to navigation in St. George's Bay and the Northumberland Strait. Today, still operational thanks to the hand of modern technology, the automated lighthouse flashes white every four seconds, visible for about six miles. Lighthouse Island provides a very personal view of thissmall piece of history. An accomplished photographer and author, Baker has created a fascinating tribute to Henry Island and its light, sharing with the reader both the beauty of the pristine island, and the rigors and joys of following in the footsteps of a nineteenth century lighthouse keeper in a twenty-first century world. Baker's splendid photographs radiate with thewarmth his family shares on the island, and provide wondrous and intimate views of their life, while his text envelops the reader in the comfort of avisit with friends." - from the dj.

"How did an estuary that was once a pristine body of water become a cesspool containing 700,00 tons of toxic sludge, a site 35 times worse than the infamous Love Canal? 'Frederick Street' tells for the first time the compelling story of a once-beautiful area where 100 years ago the Mi'kmaq lived and fished and early settlers enjoyed the bounty of the ocean. Above all, thogh, it's a story about people -- ordinary working-class people who fight to preserve their dignity, to overcome ill-informed bureaucrats, and to find justice and peace of mind for their families, while struggling with the daily devastation of disease and death from toxic exposure. Fully researched and well-documented with the real-life stories of the native Mi'kmaq, the steelworkers and their families, and concerned citizens of this Cape Breton community, 'Frederick Street' sends out a passionate message to all Canadians whose own communities face the danger of toxic waste and environmental destruction." - from rear.
