Stormy Adventure Of Abbie Burgess Lighthouse Keeper

By Connie Roop, Peter Roop
Illustrated by Connie Roop, Peter Roop

This is the exciting true story of Abbie Burgess, who single-handedly kept the lighthouse lamps lit during the tremendous storm off the coast of Maine in 1856.

Abbie Burgess' father, the lighthouse keeper, must clean and light the lighthouse lamps every day without fail. Otherwise, ships could crash into rocks and sink. Abbie's father leaves to buy supplies, but a storm hits before he can return. It's up to Abbie to do his work.
