Description
 
Glasgow native Peter Hill was 19, it was 1973 and he was to spend the next six months working on various remote lighthouses off the west coast of Scotland. Working with all manner of unusual and fascinating people, learning the habits and lore of the lighthouse and its crew, and experiencing a way of life that was soon to disappear altogether, Hillís account of his career as a relief lighthouse keeper is a beautifully written memoir. He evokes the early seventies with remarkable clarity and a great deal of humor. But the book is also a heartfelt lament, not only for his youth and innocence but also for the erosion of other values in society at large, values symbolized in the romantic and solid image of the lighthouse and all that it stands for. Illustrations.
