Review Text

  • By James Carragher on July 30, 2000

    In this brief and useful history of lighthouses along the North Carolina coast, Stick shows he knows his subject and dots the seventy odd pages with a variety of interesting facts, including why each lighthouse along the Outer Banks is painted in a different pattern. I didn't know either that lighthouse development has been under Federal Government, rather than state, control since 1789. From the some things never change department: in one instance over two hundred years ago, Congress mandated construction of a lighthouse, but refused to appropriate the funds to carry out the construction. Stick's writing is workmanlike at best.
