Knopf / Random House, Sydney - first edition ISBN:1740512472, 2003. hardcover, 5¼" x 8", with dust jacket. AS NEW book in AS NEW unclipped dust jacket. In 1973, when Peter Hill was nineteen, he began living with three men he didn't know in a lighthouse on a tiny, remote island off the west coast of Scotland. He was to spend the next year working on various Scottish lighthouses, "keeping" with all manner of unusual and fascinating people, learning the habits and lore of the lighthouse and its crew, and experiencing a way of life that was to soon disappear altogether. This book is a lament for the erosion of society's values, symbolised by the solid lighthouse and all it stands for.
