Product Description

For centuries the dangerous waters of North Carolina's Outer Banks have grounded or sunk hundreds of ships. Seafarers needed a strong point of reference to navigate the area successfully, and for the last 130 years the Cape Hatteras Lighthouse has been the most-recognized, most-photographed, most-painted, most-visited, most-read-about, and most-admired lighthouse in North America. One of the most daunting engineering tasks imaginable has been undertaken to save the lighthouse and move it safely to a new foundation 1,600 feet inland from its original site. To commemorate this event, the authors have prepared Cape Hatteras: America's Lighthouse as a tribute to the stone sentinel, describing the vast history of the lighthouse and investing it with texture and depth. The text is illustrated in full color and with more than 100 black-and-white photographs and historical diagrams.
