    Immerse yourself in New England's maritime history through tales of historic shipwrecks and heroic rescues. From Connecticut to Maine, meet the special individuals who helped those in peril. Learn about the disasters that led to the pioneering of travel safety. As told by the people who witnessed these incredible and often life-changing events, stories tell also of the Flying Santa, miracle baby rescues, and paranormal activity. Amusing accounts from one of the last surviving lighthouse keepers also provide an indelible look at life in and around the lighthouses. With an appendix of lighthouses that can be viewed by boat and a glossary of Mariner terms, this is a great resource for historians, maritime enthusiasts, and a guide for tourists and local residents alike. There's something for everyone in this photographic look at New England's lighthouses.
