It is a story of fierce storms, shipwrecks, and long haunted evenings for the families living out among the Apostle Islands – all taken from the old journals of the lighthouse keepers. This show was first produced at Big Top Chautauqua in 1989 as a creation of the Nelson Ferris Concert Company, and contains the classic songs "Keeper of the Light" and "Shine."
