As well as providing a history of lighthouses and the Stevenson dynasty, this beautiful and profusely illustrated book highlights the contribution made by lighthouse keepers over the last century or two to the study of natural history, and ornithology in particular. Much of this is discussed in the words of the keepers themselves set in the context of lighthouse history and thus providing a fascinating link with the past.
