About David Gendell's Book

Lifelong Annapolis sailor David Gendell has written the first book on the iconic Thomas Point Shoal Lighthouse. “Thomas Point Shoal Lighthouse: A Chesapeake Bay Icon” was published by The History Press in 2020 and has been receiving strong reviews within the lighthouse community and beyond.

U.S. Lighthouse Society Vice President says, “…an informative and enjoyable book that weaves an entertaining story about the lighthouse…” Bill Wagner of the Capital Gazette Newspapers writes, “…meticulously researched, thoroughly detailed, and well written…” And America’s Cup winner and author Gary Jobson asserts, “Once you start reading ‘Thomas Point Shoal Lighthouse’ you won’t put it down.”

This beloved lighthouse was built in 1875 and is one of only 12 lighthouses designated as a National Historic Landmark. The book covers the history of the lighthouse, its keepers, and the ongoing preservation efforts. A portion of the proceeds from sales of the book are donated to the lighthouse preservation effort. David gave Jimmy Buffett a private tour of the lighthouse last fall and Jimmy left with a copy of the book in hand.
