Hudson River Lighthouses: An Illustrated History

Henry Hudson explored the river that now bears his name in 1609. The
invention of the steamboat 200 years later, and the opening of the Erie
Canal in 1825, made the Hudson one of America's busiest rivers. From
1826 until the middle of the 20th century, more than a dozen
lighthouses guided ships past its islands and shallows.

Join author and photographer Kevin Woyce for an illustrated tour of
these historic lighthouses, from the long-vanished stations at
Stuyvesant and Coxsackie to New York City's beloved "Little Red
Lighthouse." Discover how and why these lights were built, and meet
some of the brave men and women who kept them shining.

Illustrated throughout with original black & white photographs and
vintage images.
