Being from Michigan, it was completely new territory but very close to home.

I found this wonderful history jem in Cedarville, Michigan, very close to Hessell where the Rev. W. H. Law resided. This book would be of interest to anyone who loves Great Lakes history, lighthouses and their keepers, shipping stories, storms on the lakes. Rev. Law was blessed with faith, courage and a very caring nature. Having worked in elementary school libraries and a public library, I especially liked the special effort Rev. Law made to help the light keepers pass their lonely vigils on ve ...more

The life of a lighthouse keeper is often presented as a romantic notion, as a noble, peaceful albeit solitary pursuit. The reality of those lighthouse keepers and the Life Saving Service Crews following the turn of the century was far less rosy than I ever could have imagined. The Reverend W.H. Law worked tirelessly to provide comfort to and lobby for the improvement of the situation of these important life-saving characters in our collective history. This book is a must-read for history buffs f ...more

I won this book in a Goodreads giveaway. I'm glad I did. This book was great. It was well written, and was easy to follow. I enjoyed reading about all the endeavors of W.H. Law. I thought this book would be full of religion, as Law was a reverend, but it did not have as much as one would think; He rather believed in the "Gospel of Humanity". My only regret is that there is a not many more people like him nowadays.
