    A Welcoming View

    Like the lighthouse itself, this book is a welcoming view of the Jersey shore and it's historic ligthouses. Complete with directions, pictures, and information, this book is a must-read for fans of lighthouses and/or the Jersey Shore. Another great book from down the shore publishers.
