Listing Detail Tabs

Lighthouses have a mystique, a romance and an almost biblical significance about them. Elegant structures located on remote and exposed sites where the land is challenged by the sea, they beam light into the darkness and transform uncertainty into knowledge and safety. They are the subject of legends and yarns, shanties and poems, written and oral history around the world. New Zealand’s lighthouses – their locations, design, construction, operation and demanning – have been well documented in Helen Beaglehole’s comprehensive history, LIGHTING THE COAST (2006). But the lives and work of the men and women behind the lights over the last 150 years deserves closer study. Why did they choose the life? What did the job entail from day to day and year to year? How did it change over the decades? How did they feel about their work? What were their fears, frustrations and rewards?

Helen Beaglehole author, Craig Potton Publishing 2009, 263pp, s/c, b/w photos.
