It includes breathtaking scenery and highlights the romance of men who have gone to sea in ships along the perilous coastline of Africa's Cape of Storms.

A handy and fascinating insight into the features and technical innovations of lighthouses, this edition also gives a brief overview of lighthouses since the earliest known light at Pharos in the Ancient World. Celebrating the many lives and ships saved from the treacherous currents and tempestuous seas off the coast of South Africa - paying homage to the fortitude of its intrepid lighthouse keepers and the ingenuity of the men who designed, built and maintain these beacons of hope.
