Near Crescent City, six miles from land at the end of St. George Reef, stands a distant, wave-swept rockā€”and on that rock, a lighthouse. A posting at St. George Reef was not for the faint-hearted. Five lighthouse-keepers died in the course of their lonely, arduous duties. Waves batter the lighthouse from all sides, in stormy weather reaching to the height of the light itself, 150 feet above sea level. Author Guy Towers will visit the Eureka Library to discuss his new book about the light, Images of America: St. George Reef Lighthouse.
