The Lighthouse Keeper’s Son shares a chronological collection of several short stories recalling author Dallas E. Quidley Jr.’s life as the son of a lighthouse keeper. With modern marine safety technology, the lighthouse way of life has slipped away, even though many lighthouses still stand and are open to the public. Recalling his personal experiences, Quidley reveals various aspects of life as a lighthouse keeper. The US Lighthouse Service and the US Coast Guard have historically been foremost in safe marine navigation. The keepers were highly qualified and dedicated mariners—people who were truly the salt of the earth. In Quidley’s family, three generations plus one son tried to live up to that reputation. This collection of personal narratives offers exciting stories of Quidley’s life before and after his time in the lighthouses with his family. Through these stories of events and people, a portrait of a strong, hardworking, Christian and family man emerges. The Lighthouse Keeper’s Son chronicles a life well-lived and the cherished memories of a man who has experienced his life to the fullest.
