The Lighthouse Stevensons, all four generations of them, built every lighthouse round Scotland, were responsible for a slew of inventions in both construction and optics, and achieved feats of engineering in conditions that would be forbidding even today. The same driven energy which Robert Louis Stevenson put into writing, his ancestors put into lighting the darkness of the seas. 'The Lighthouse Stevensons' is a story of high endeavour, beautifully told; indeed, is was one of the most celebrated works of historical biography in recent memory.
