For those of you who follow the books of maritime author and lighthouse aficionado JoAnn Semones, who has also written stories for Lighthouse Digest, you’ll definitely want this hard cover 204-page book, the fourth in her series. The Point Pinos Lighthouse is the oldest active lighthouse on the Pacific. Because of this, the site is brimming with a rich history of colorful characters, including Spanish adventures, notorious smugglers, intriguing authors, gutty sea captains, and the first women lighthouse keepers of the West Coast. If you like history, especially Pacific Coast history, you will want this book. It is available as Item #2175 for $26.95 plus shipping from Lighthouse Digest, PO Box 250, East Machias, ME 04530, or call 207-259-2121. It can also be ordered on-line at www.LighthouseDigest.com.
