This volume of Florida's Ghostly Legends and Haunted Folklore offers a delightful—and somewhat spooky—look into the darker side of the south and central areas of the Sunshine State. Explore fortress ruins in New Smyrna Beach, and keep an eye out for mysterious shadows and dark figures in the nearby forest; visit the island of Islamorada, where the ghostly remains of Flagler's railway rumble over tracks destroyed in the 1935 Labor Day Hurricane; and, if you're especially brave, walk through the eerie corridors of the mausoleum in Myrtle Hill Cemetery near Tampa, where you are sure to hear whispers from the dead or the muffled echoes of a music box. Delve into the unknown with Greg Jenkins as he examines the history, legend, and paranormal rationale behind strange occurrences in many of south and central Florida's haunted locations. Get a fresh look at some of the state's most famous ghost stories and learn never-before-heard tales of the strange and the supernatural as you take a trip through Haunted Florida.

Ghosts. Unearthly presences. Things that go bump in the night. St. Augustine, America's oldest city, has them all. The unique and often turbulent history of the Ancient City has spawned more than four hundred years' worth of shadowy figures of the dark hours. Come walk through misty, cobblestone streets, down shaded alleys, along the wall of the old stone fort. Smell the smoke of ancient fires, the musty corners of old houses, the garlic and olive oil of Majorcan kitchens. Listen to the tinkling of wine glasses long shattered, the strum of Spanish guitars long broken, and the laughter of a dozen foreign tongues long dead. Awaken to the midnight howling of the city's prowling cats; seek sleep between nightmares lulled by the lapping waters of the Matanzas Bay—named for the massacre of the French Huguenots by the Spanish here in 1565. Author Dave Lapham has collected twenty-four stories from St. Augustine's rich oral history into a light, yet sometimes hair-raising peek at the spooky side of the Oldest City.
