"Life as a lightkeeper is almost impossible for most people to imagine: isolation on rugged shores through foggy days and stormy nights, often with only the crashing waves for company. In 'Vanishing Lights', author Chris Mills captures his own experience as a lightkeeper on four unique Maritime islands -- Seal, Cross, Machias Seal, and Gannet Rock -- and uncovers their remarkable histories. Each island's story is layered with fascinatingdetails, including tales of adventure delivered by fishermen, birdwatchers , tourists, and friends; accounts of shipwrecks and ghosts that haunt the shores; and Mills' own engaging memories." - from the rear cover.
