Overview

Some 30 Florida lighthouses today guide shipping south from the St. Marys River to the tip of the Keys, then north to Pensacola Bay. They comprise some of Florida's oldest and most historic structures and represent many diverse styles of architect and daymark designs- from the black and white bands of St. Augustine Lighthouse to the spider-legged iron structures along the Florida Reef. This beautiful book traces the story of each.

With interest in Florida's maritime heritage moving strongly into the new millenium, the time seemed right to update Guide to Florida Lighthouses. This second edition, like the first, includes a general history of each lighthouse, with color photos of each.
