Florida's coast - from Amelia Island to the Keys to Apalachee Bay - serve as fitting backdrops for these chilling yarns of mystery and intrigue. Where else but Florida can you find a greater treasure trove of tales filled with pirates, shipwrecked sailors, ghostly sea captains and lost tribes of Native Americans?
From haunted lighthouses to ghost ships to sea serpents, these 17 family-friendly stories will captivate listeners of all ages. And there's no better storyteller than Doug Alderson, a naturalist and award-winning writer who has explored every mile of Florida's coast in scouting the Florida Circumnavigational Saltwater Paddling Trail.
