Sentinels of the Shore: A Guide to the Lighthouses and Lightships of New Jersey
When people think of New Jersey's lighthouses, most think of a famous few: Barnegat, Sandy Hook, Twin Lights, and Cape May. But from New York Harbor, down along the coast to Cape May and up the Delaware Bay, the total number of lightstations, past and present, is 49. Surprisingly, 26 New Jersey remain standing today. This comprehensive full-color hardcover guide includes all of the lighthouses and lightships that are part of the state's maritime history. This book provides historical information as well as stories of the keepers and notable achievements, and includes 40 color photographs. The book can be easily slipped into a large pocket or backpack, and directions and locations for visitors are provided. The guide also includes a lighthouse bibliography and color fold-out map of all past and present New Jersey lightstations.
