Description

Canada's west coast has one of the most extensive networks of staffed lighthouses remaining anywhere in the world and the authors visit all the most significant sites, ranging from the Carmanah Point light that watches over the hikers of the West Coast Trail on Vancouver Islands station -"Little Alcatraz" - which is just a tower rooted on a rock 50 kilometres west of Prince Rupert, to the popular harbour lights of Vancouver and Victoria.

Jam-packed with magnificent full-colour photographs and firsthand accounts from lightkeepers on every part of the coast, this spectacular book captures the romance and beauty of British Columbia's lighthouses. Here are the lightkeepers' own tragic, inspiring, humourous and eerie stories of life on the lights. Guiding Lights is not only a lovely gift book, but a moving tribute to the people who have lived and worked on the lights and a valuable portrait of what continues to be a proud maritime heritiage.
