Creepy Florida - Phantom Pirates the Hog Island Witch the Demented Doctor at the Don Vicente & More
Publisher: The History Press
The author of Eerie Florida shares more dark tales from across the Sunshine State in this illustrated guide to local legends and haunted sites. Author Mark Muncy and photographer Kari Schultz have crisscrossed Florida from Key West to the Emerald Coast, hunting down stories of ghosts and reports of paranormal activity. Their previous books, Eerie Florida and Freaky Florida provided armchair explorer and amateur ghost hunters a literal roadmap to the state’s spookiest sites. Now they present an all-new installment of Florida weirdness in Creepy Florida. Check in at The Biltmore in Coral Gables to spot the ghost of slain Fatty Walsh roaming the thirteenth floor. Sit down for a meal with the spirit of Ethel Allen at Ashley's Restaurant in Rockledge. Visit haunted graveyards, museums, parks and battlefields. Hear macabre stories of spectral pirates, gangsters, witches and madmen. From phantasmagoric packs of Madam McCoy's girls in Pensacola to the ghostly clacking of Hemingway's typewriter in the Keys, Mark Muncy and Kari Schultz lead brave readers along Florida’s border with the great beyond.
