Reviews for To the Lighthouse


"An enjoyable read, To The Lighthouse is an informative and significant book offering maps and beautiful colour photographs—it's a keeper."

Sooke Mirror


"To The Lighthouse is filled with history, providing background about the construction of each lighthouse and the way it was made to work in that spot. The history also includes information on the characters who worked at each lighthouse. Better yet, the book provides detailed information on how to get to each of the lighthouses listed, so you can take in the views and the vibes in person. To The Lighthouse is a fun read, thanks to authors John Walls … and Peter Johnson. Richard Paddle’s photographs are superb, and the maps will help us keep our bearings, more or less. This book will help to build out understanding of some of the iconic buildings that dot our coastline. It might encourage us to get some exercise, too."

"A gorgeous guide book to these historic lighthouses that are throughout this coast. The stories of the 25 lighthouses [give] a sense of the importance of lighthouses in our geography and identity as a coastal province, but also history and sovereignty, the elements, and the wonderful and unique people who manned them over the last century."
