The keepers at Plum Beach Light off North Kingstown miraculously escaped with their lives; others weren’t so lucky; Ida Lewis lived at Newport’s Lime Rock Light for more than 60 years and became one of the world’s most celebrated lightkeepers; The keeper and his family at Block Island North Light aided the survivors of one of New England’s worst shipwrecks, the Larchmont disaster of 1907; Pomham Rocks Light on the Providence River was home to a famous fish-catching cat; and much more. The Lighthouses of Rhode Island is meticulously researched and copiously illustrated, with photographs from the author’s enormous collection. (M). $14.95
