Paralleling the second, all-new PBS series, Legendary Lighthouses, Volume II, continues the journey along the lighthouse trail, picking up where the first volume ended and completing the dramatic story of America's lights.Stunning color photographs, many taken during filming of the television series, offer glimpses of the spectacular locations of the lights. These images, together with heroic tales, unpredictable storms, dramatic stories of solitude, and colorful personalities, bring to life each lighthouse, each landscape, and all the history that makes these towers true American treasures.
