Variant Breed: Confessions of a Light-Keeper

Front Cover
Wordclay, 2010 - Lighthouse keepers - 306 pages
This book is about the author's experience as a Light House keeper. It is an entertaining record of day-to-day living experienced by the author and other light-keepers at various light stations during their time of duties. Here are a few stories about some of those light-keepers, their attitude towards crises, and their humour. They most certainly were 'a variant breed.'
