Overview

Do you know anyone who grew up in a lighthouse?
Well, here is a true story of the Roberts family''s three generations of lighthouse keepers in the U. S. Lighthouse Service. Their dedication and devotion began in 1894 when grandfather was assigned to the Cape Saint George Lighthouse in Apalachicola, Florida, and lasted for over fifty-eight years and three generations. This story, recorded by a family member, is all about their lighthouses, family lives, duties of maintaining and operating the lighthouses along with childhood stories of his growing up on lighthouse stations during the depression years. A review by The St. Simon''s Soundings, Fort Walton Beach, Florida: "This life at the lighthouse has succumbed to electric power, automation and GPS and it was wonderful to hear of it from one who was there; the author informs and entertains with tales of his youth. Moreover, Billy Roberts is a breath of true history for all of us who have recently become ''natives'' of this Gulf Coast".
