New England's foremost maritime historian Jeremy D'Entremont continues his definitive series about the storms, shipwrecks, and heroic lighthouse keepers of the region with The Lighthouses of Maine: Southern Maine and Casco Bay. Eleven lights are detailed here, beginning with Whaleback Light, which marks the entrance to Portsmouth, New Hampshire Harbor (it is in Maine waters by a few hundred feet) to Halfway Rock Light, located out in Casco Bay, eight miles east of the entrance to Portland Harbor. Each chapter features a treasury of historic photos and all the stories of the keepers, the storms they battled, and the wrecks they tried valiantly to save.
