The book that started Keepers of the Patos Light non-profit! Helene Glidden’s wonderful account of her childhood spent on Patos Island is again back in print. A new commemorative edition of Light on the Island has just been published by Mike McClosky of San Juan Publishing Company.
Working diligently with members of KOPL, Mike was able to revise his 50th anniversary edition of Light on the Island and publish a brand new edition to honor the 125th birthday of the Patos Lighthouse. This edition features a facsimile of the 1951 original cover (front and back) and includes many more photographs and maps, many newly discovered since the book was last published.
Last but certainly not least, this new edition features what we have been calling “The Missing Chapter”! Deemed “too risque”, to include in the book when it was published in 1950, now, 68 years later, the book has finally been published in the form that Helene Glidden intended it to be.
The cost of this new edition is $25.00, plus $2.50 postage for the first copy, and $1.00 for each additional copy sent at the same time.
