Guarding Door County, Lighthouses And Life-saving Stations

Creator: Stacy Thomas, Virginia Thomas | History - 2005-07-13

Jutting out of Wisconsin into the blue waters of Lake Michigan, the scenic peninsula of Door County is endowed with the longest coastline of any county in the nation.

Publisher: Arcadia Publishing

About this book
Jutting out of Wisconsin into the blue waters of Lake Michigan, the scenic peninsula of Door County is endowed with the longest coastline of any county in the nation. Since the mid-1800s, the region has boasted a strong maritime industry, dependent on the constant vigilance and efforts of U.S. Coast Guard units. The county has been home to as many as 12 historic light stations, as well as three life-saving stations. Beginning with Pottawatomie Light in 1837 and Sturgeon Bay Canal Life-Saving Station in 1886, keepers and surfmen survived both boredom and peril to ensure safe navigation and commerce, while rescuing those in distress. Through archival photographs, stories ofshipwrecks, rescues, service, and pride spring to life. Rare rescue images of the Otter, a schooner which wrecked in 1895, are especially noteworthy.

About this book
Wildflowers of Door County Wisconsin's Unique Floral Preserve Paul G. Mahlberg and Marilyn Waite Mahlberg A field guide to the wildflowers found in one of the most unusual and beautiful places in America. Door County, Wisconsin, is a place of tremendous scenic beauty and appeal with 250 miles of shoreline, ten lighthouses, five state parks, and over a dozen county parks and conservation areas. Its unequaled number of wildflower species makes it special enough to deserve its own field guide. Despite the fame of Door County and the great diversity of its flora, an adequate book to help outdoor enthusiasts identify its wildflowers has not existed until now. This simple-to-use guide contains nearly 400 watercolors, all painted from Door County specimens. Illustrations are grouped by flower color to aid in recognition; within each group, flowers are arranged in taxonomic order. Labeled drawings of plant parts and a glossary are included. Even the least experienced nature lover will find Wildflowers of Door County an easy and precise guide, while for the wildflower aficionado it provides floral and descriptive details unavailable in other guides. Visitors and residents alike can better experience Door County's wonders and richness with this book in hand. The husband-and-wife team of botanist Paul G. Malhlberg and artist Marilyn Waite Mahlberg were inspired by their love of Door County to locate and write about (Paul) and portray in ink and watercolor (Marilyn) the approximately 375 wildflowers in this field guide. They live in Bloomington, Indiana, during the academic year, where Paul is Emeritus Professor of Biology at Indiana University. In the summer the couple resides in Door County, Wisconsin. Royalties earned from this book will be donated to the Door County Land Trust. May 2001 240 pages, 373 color photos, 5 x 8, bibl., index paper 0-253-21453-X $18.95 t / 14.50

    I'll take Door Number 3

    A tiny, ditzy, klutzy author who can't seem to get it right somehow gets herself involved with Major Bad Stuff in upstate Wisconsin. In the tradition of the inept protagonist who manages to solve the mystery despite herself, Annie stumbles through a series of ever-escalating mishaps, falls in love, and changes her own life. A combination mystery/romance, this book features detailed descriptions of Door County and its houses, villages, and landscapes. Obviously the author is familiar with the area, and some of her descriptions stuck with me, like the old, heavy, wooden doors in the Lighthouse Inn.The book follows the standard mystery format, and I appreciate that it's chock-full of female characters. There's a neat juxtaposition of the friendly, caring, loving group of friends who support Annie and the disgusting, malevolent, Uber-Evil women of the Bad Side.However, there are a few issues. The protagonist comes off as somewhat vapid, with her repeated use of "Oh... 3/5 K. A. Krisko (Colorado, USA) - See all my reviews, April 8, 2013

    Messy

    0 1/5 Amazon Customer (USA) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Murder in Death's Door County (An Annie Malone Cozy Mystery Book 1) (Kindle Edition) There are some typographical errors and missing words. Not as bad as some books I've read, but enough that I thought this was the reason I couldn't follow the story. Then I realized the author was trying to put different stories together and there was no connection. The characters say their lines without background or continuity. It leaves the reader confused and not really interested. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , March 9, 2013

    Hot Mess Alert

    Where do I start? I have read a lot of good books by Indie authors, but this wasn't one of them. Maybe I should hire myself out to some of these authors to point out the glaring errors. I would have needed a LOT of red ink for this one. Do some of these folks not bother to read over what they have written? This book doesn't even work well as a parody. What a hot mess. There were missing words, added words, wrong room numbers, wrong names just to name a few of the things that made this book so bad. One person would go pick someone up, but then just like magic, the other person had the vehicle, and dropped off the original driver. There was a whole host of plot devices in this mess. No stone was left unturned... ghosts, bats, jewels, drugs, booby traps, cut brake lines, bombs, kidnapping ....you name it, and it was in there. (!!!) As for the punctuation in quotes, that is in there too. About the only thing that was missing was lawyers, guns and money. Oh wait, guns were there... 1/5 Laughing Raccoon - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    An Elegant Book

    First of all, I highly recommend Door County, WI to anyone looking for a place to visit in the Midwest. I've been traveling there on occasion for the past 20 or so years. The county is a peninsula between Lake Michigan and Green Bay, which are expansive Great Lake fresh water environments. Overall, it's more of an intimate destination, dominated by rocky coasts and outcrops near the water that are complemented by a provincial rural setting inland from the lake, bay and harbors. It's a outstanding place for families and couples to explore and experience the outdoors, history, wildlife, people, entertainment, parks, food and other excellent local events and activities.The book is quality printed, nicely sized, not too hefty. A perfect coffee table and conversation book.This is the first iteration of this book in 2013, where an online community of photographers (amateur and professional) mostly crowd-sourced the content, by submitting photos to be considered and... 5/5 Keeffer - See all my reviews This review is from: Capture Door County: Fine-Art Photography of Door County, Wisconsin (Hardcover) First of all, I highly recommend Door County, WI to anyone looking for a place to visit in the Midwest.
