As one who spent a portion of an earlier life in and around Daytona Beach, I found the title of Dusty Smith's book Haunted Daytona Beach (Haunted America) to be fascinating... enough so to pick it up and give it a closer look. This slim volume clocks in at 127 pages, but there's a surprising amount of material between the covers of this fast read, and some of it can be quite funny to one who spent time in the area. The history and historical trivia buff in me compelled me to take a look... or could it have been something else?

Daytona Beach is probably best known for Spring Break (though MTV has switched it's loyalties to Panama City), NASCAR and Bike Week, and if author Dusty Smith has anything to do with it, the town will soon be known for the ghosts and spirits that evidently dwell in the area. Must add that I'm not into spiritualists, mediums, paranormal research or anything of the sort. I'm not putting any of these down or denying that spirits, ghosts, apparitions, specters, phantoms, visions, phantasms, shades, spooks, manifestations, or good old-fashioned 'haints' exist. I just haven't personally encountered any, though there was a woman that I dated in Gainesville years ago... never mind.

Ms. Smith visits some of the old 'haunts' (pun intended) that were familiar when I used to frequent the area, and the photos alone are worth the price of admission to this book. The Beach Street area on the Mainland side of the city has been in the process of a slow death for many decades, actually since the '60s when the shopping strips and malls started growing in the area, and she has documented some of the 'spirits' that are said to live in this and other locations.

Dusty Smith has strong credentials for this book. Besides being head of a Daytona Beach paranormal group, she gives ghost tours where she has been recounting these tales she's gathered over the years and points out the locations where they occur. The tours pay for maintenance of city cemeteries. The quick-reading, well-illustrated book has a lot of great history wrapped around ghost stories. My favorite story is the bikers bar where the toilets flush by themselves...you know they don't get flushed much otherwise.

I bought this for our vacation condo in Daytona Beach. We rent it out when we are not using it and this is a great book for the folks coming to stay there. I love it since I was born and raised her in Daytona. Visitors love it because it is a nice way to see about the history of the city. I also have a couple of other Daytona history books as well.

"Haunted Daytona Beach" is a fun journey into the spooky side of America's sideshow of a spring break destination. Dusty Smith's tone is friendly, and she knows what she's talking about, with years of experience in the paranormal. If you like a good ghost story or hearing urban legends, this book is a definite must.

Enjoyed it completely. It truly does need a sequel, an update but still excellent reading
