    “With this book, Hawley cements his standing as one of northern Michigan’s most respected and leading Great Lakes and maritime historians. While Hawley highlights the professionalism and high standards of the US Lighthouse Service, the Lifesaving Service, and the US Coast Guard, he also shares the stories of the men, women, and families, and the challenging lives they led in their remote posts. A must-read for those interested in northern Michigan or maritime history.”
