What kind of person would want to become a Lighthouse Keeper ? Spending weeks and months in a tower, miles from shore, and in the front line of the very worst of weather conditions. The sea crashes into the structure, and climbs to the very top, shaking the lighthouse tower, and quivering the crockery. With only the company of two others, wasn't it boring and monotonous? Did you ever fall out with each other? How did it feel to be stuck,overdue, when bad weather prevented relief? This book presents first hand,the experiences,and daily lot of the Lighthouse Keeper,of how the team bonded and made certain that the reassuring beams of the lighthouse, never failed the Mariner.
