Our References

I'm not going to repeat many times in this document the references used, so this page is here as a central index.

Printed Materials

  1. Great Lakes Lighthouses, American and Canadian, written by Wes Oleszewski and photography by Wayne S. Sapulski, published by Avery Color Studios in Gwinn, Michigan. Wes has created an excellent index to the Great Lakes and this book has been a source of encouragement and support.
  2. List of ALL Existing U.S. Lighthouses by Bob and Sandra Shanklin (19th Edition January 2006).  This has been a great reference of lighthouses and their index (in the form XX-nn) is shown on all US pages.
  3. Lighthouses of Europe, Daniel Charles (text), Philip Plisson and Gullaume Plisson (Photos), Watson-Guptill Publications, New York (undated).  In addition to an excellent focus on 230 of the most stunning lighthouses off the Atlantic coast of Europe, this provides a reference list of most (all?) of the Atlantic lighthouses.
