When Peter Taylor decided to retire from the sea and settle down to married life, he did not make a very drastic move. Joining the lighthouse service, he was posted in 1958 to Moko Hinau, a rugged island jutting from deep water off the east coast of North Auckland.
This is a lively and cheerful account of a challenging, often adventurous life far from the settled pattern of today's suburbia. And, as the manned lighthouses on the New Zealand coast gradually converted to automatic units, it was a life which belonged to the past.
Illustrated with b&w images. Collectable book on maritime history.
