Not recommended for a reader interested in a history of lighthouses. This book was written for younger readers, but it has a bit of a condescending tone and, although it is illustrated with b&w etchings, lacks visual imagery. The author, Mary Ellen Chase, was a distinguished academic in the English Department at Smith College in the early- to mid-20th century and also, as a novelist, was the successor to Sarah Orne Jewett in Maine literary regionalism. If you are an admirer of Chase, this book could be worth reading for the sake of "completeness," which (combined with my personal interest in lighthouse photography) was my main reason for reading it. If your interest is in lighthouses more generally, though, you'd be better off simply subscribing to Lighthouse Digest magazine. ( )
