Guardians of the Gray Atlantic
Lighthouses of the East Coast
by Mark William Pollock
About the Book
Come along on an epic journey of discovery, like a modern-day hobbit, following Mark William Pollock as he travels up and down the east coast of the United States, chasing the elusive historic lighthouses of the Atlantic seaboard. From New England to the deep South, Pollock captures the color and nuances of an insane variety of America's light stations, and adds his curiously dubious take on the historical significance of each structure. Some obscure, some well-known, each has a story, from the stubby lights high on the bluffs of Massachusetts to the towering giants of Jersey and the Carolinas. Amazing true tales and astonishing, totally unfounded rumors abound here.
Mark William Pollock is a native of Lancaster, PA and has lived in the Boston area for the last quarter century. An accomplished musician, he has released four audio CD's on the Junkyard Label. He resides in Massachusetts with his wife Michele and more cats than he can count. His first book of photographs, "Cat Eye View," was released in 2008.
