Lighthouse Keepers & Their Families Door County, Wisconsin 1837-1939
Keepers of the Lights is an outstanding work of local social history and a well-researched and thoughtful case study in 19th and early 20th century US history. Taken by themselves, the facts and data it contains would make the book a standard reference on the local lighthouses and an indispensable source for local genealogists and histroians. But Karges has gone beyond compilation of facts to weave a fascinating overview of the lives and careers of Door County lighthouse keepers and their families that will also interest general readers.
