• Lighthouses of Texas (Gulf Coast Books, sponsored by Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi)

    Sending their beams over the coastal waters to guide mariners into harbor, lighthouses form part of the romance of America's past. Here, available again, is the comprehensive story of the lighthouses and lightships of Texas, first told in 1991 by historian T. Lindsay Baker and illustrated with watercolors by noted artist Harold Phenix. After introducing readers to lighthouses and their keepers, Baker provides chapters detailing the surviving Texas lighthouses. These include lights at Brazos Santiago, Point Isabel, Aransas Pass, Matagorda, Halfmoon Reef, Brazos River, Galveston Jetty, Galveston, Bolivar Point, Heald Bank, Sabine Pass, and Sabine Bank. The story of the lighthouses is one with a human face. Readers will meet engineers, inspectors, and the men and women who served as lighthouse keepers on the remote Texas beaches. In a concluding chapter, Baker chronicles the fate of the lights in the mid-twentieth century. A new preface updates the condition of the various lighthouses at the dawn of the twenty-first century.

  • Lighthouses of Texas (Images of America)

    Not long after winning their independence from Mexico in 1836, Texans began clamoring for lighthouses. Hundreds of miles of barrier islands, shifting sandbars, and shallow bays made the Texas coast treacherous at a time when few overland routes provided access to the new republic. Beginning in 1852, twenty-eight lighthouses were built along the Texas coastline, on land and over water. Lighthouse service was often a family affair, with husbands, wives, and children working together as keepers and assistants. For nearly 70 years, construction continued as coastal erosion, hurricanes, and wars regularly damaged or destroyed those lighthouses already built. These “sentinels of the sea” lessened but did not eliminate the chance of shipwreck, so lifesaving stations, manned by able seamen with unsinkable surfboats, were established as well. As Texas’s lighthouses were gradually automated throughout the 20th century, many were sold to private owners or abandoned. Today, several have been restored, and two―at Aransas Pass and Port Isabel―still function as aids to navigation.

  • Port Bolivar, Texas - Lighthouse (8oz Whole Bean Small Batch Artisan Coffee - Bold & Strong Medium Dark Roast w/ Artwork)

    8oz Bold and Strong Whole Bean (for freshest coffee possible) Small batch roasted, to uphold the highest quality Roasted to order, you will get the freshest coffee available Micro-lot from family owned farms, grown on small farms at high altitudes Our fine coffees are farm-to-cup: we use this phrase to describe coffee's journey to your cup: farmed, source processed, roasted, and brewed. We only use small lots, coffees grown on small lots support family-owned farms and have lower yields making the supply of high quality growers limited and valuable. The best coffees in the world are grown on small farms at high altitudes. Small batch roasters are like gourmet chefs selecting and bringing out the unique flavors in their ingredients (in this case coffee beans). Roasting coffee is an art & science with many variables: temperature, timing, water content, mixture, and quantity. All of these nuances are better controlled in smaller batches. Coffee can sit on grocery store shelves for up to 36 weeks. That's why most coffee bags have expiration dates instead of 'Roasted-On' dates. Freshness matters to taste and flavor in a big way. That's why emphasizing freshness is so important as a differentiator - we roast to order. Lantern Press is a dynamic art company that specializes in the ...
