  • More About This Book
Manatee County's history is filled with tales of Native American battles, shipwrecks and the expeditions of Hernando de Soto. It's no surprise that spirits still linger on these sunny shores. Anna Maria Island's first permanent resident still returns to the island more than one hundred years later to flirt with the female tourists. A convict hanged in the county courthouse in 1907 is sometimes heard singing on the courthouse grounds. In the 1970s, the specter of a blond woman was seen hitchhiking along the old Skyway Bridge, only to vanish once she'd been picked up. Join author and paranormal investigator Liz Reed on a tour of Manatee County's most haunted locales.
