6 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Paul Moore on 11 Nov 2012
Format: Paperback
This is a great story from start to finish. From a crazy childhood, full of adventure and mischief, through to a chilling first hand account of the storms that marred the 1979 Fastnet yacht race, this is 'non-put-down-able' reading at it's best.
Highly recommended.

Gerald Butler's life as a keeper of lighthouses in Irish coastal waters is often amusing and provides wonderful insights to what it was like to live alone with two other men on a rock for weeks on end...until technology came along and put them ashore for good.

This is a really interesting book for those who love lighthouses. A very good introduction to the beautiful Cork coast in particular. The Butler twins are great.
