In Beacons of Wonderment, A Fascination with Maine’s Lighthouses, author Bob Trapani, Jr. takes you on a lighthouse journey for both the mind and eyes—guided by the heart every step of the way. His thoughtful prose invites you to consider their boundless appeal as the pairing imagery captivates you with the allure and intrigue of Maine’s lighthouses.
Bob’s appreciation for Maine’s lighthouses is directly underpinned by a love and fascination with the coast of Maine. The craggy coastline, the many islands crowned in green and the wild wave-swept ledges that make the Pine Tree State’s lighthouses, well—distinctly Maine, holds sway with the lights throughout the volume. Together, they weave a unique story and present a fresh new look at Maine’s lighthouses.
