"This is the story of perhaps the most famous ofall lighthouses, the lonely, wave-swept Eddystone, guarding the southweste rn approaches to Great Britain. Conflicting currents and winds cause the waters about the reef to "plunge and cascade into the rocks from all directions at once," which, from the earliest times, has made the reefs of Eddystone a dread to mariners and made the building of a lighthouse there an epic struggle against sea and weather, a task demanding vision, courage, and dedication." - dj.
