The Field Guide to Lighthouses of the Pacific Coast

The Field Guide to Lighthouses of the Pacific Coast: California, Oregon, Washington, Alaska, and Hawai'i by Elinor De Wire. St. Paul, Minnesota, 2006. ISBN: 978-0-7603-2466-0

This delightful little book has a page or two devoted to every lighthouse of the Pacific Coast, as described in the title. In addition to a picture or two of each lighthouse, and a brief history, there are directions, hours of operation, and other information as to whether the lighthouse is open to visitors, or private, etc.

My only complaint about the book is that not all of the photographs are new. While the majority are in color, a few are in black and white, and some even appear to be quite old historical photographs. While this would be fine as a secondary picture, the book would be nicer if ALL the pictures were current, and in color. A minor complaint.

If your goal is to visit a lighthouse or two on your vacation, or on a Sunday afternoon excursion, this book is a great resource to have along. If you want to refer to it as a reference book, you don't necessarily have to buy a copy of your own, as your local library undoubtedly has one for you to check out. So check it out!
