Beginning in the 18th century and ending in the mid-19th century, this extraordinary chronicle examines these iconic building from every angle, including the evolution of lighthouse design; the tremendous obstacles overcome during construction and upkeep; the thrilled tales of heroism and desperate shipwrecks; as well as the daily lives of the dedicated and often long-suffering keepers.
