Anyone who knows Bruce Rogerson of Fort Bragg will tell you he is one of the  Coast’s hardest working and most reliable volunteers. When he says he’s going to do something, he does it and does a great job. Knowing that, it is no suprise that when he agreed to work with the Point Cabrillo Lightkeepers Association and turn out a book on the history of the Light Station, the result is first class. “Images of America: Point Cabrillo Light Station,” by Arcadia Publishing, is a wonderful new photo history, covering everything from the Pomos and Frolic shipwreck that led to settlement on the Coast to major preservation awards for the restoration work awarded to the Lightkeepers Association in 2007. I am a former Association board member and current member of the Coast Guard Auxiliary that helps maintain the light — so I know a little about the history — and I am thoroughly impressed with Rogerson’s work. The photos are really great — many of them never published before. It’s a must-have for those interested in local history or lighthouses. Rogerson was planning to sign books at the lighthouse this weekend (December 13), but I understand you’ll be able to buy autographed copies of his book directly from the lighthouse gift shop year around. At $19.99, it’s a perfect present for the holidays or a birthday.It also available at the following Fort Bragg bookstores:

  • Guest House Museum
  • Dolphin Isle Marina
  • Frame Mill Artworks
  • Cheshire Books
  • Four Eyed Frog Books
