In 1786 the Northern Lighthouse Trust was established and a few years later Robert Stevenson was appointed their chief engineer. This is the story of the Lighthouse Stevensons, responsible for designing and building ninety-seven lights speckled around the Scottish Coast.
Author Bella Bathurst presents a mesmerising account of these little known Scottish heroes whose literary descendent remarked, "I might write books till 1900 and not serve humanity so well."
A very neat and clean copy in excellent condition. There is some natural tanning of the inside pages but the book remians in perfect condition.
