Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

You are probably familiar with the popularized stories "Rip Van Winkle" and "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow," but have you heard the original unabridged versions by Washington Irving? His skillfully written and colorful tales have much more meaning and depth. In "Rip Van Winkle," Irving makes a profound social comment about the changes that were happening in his America, and "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow" isn't just a chilling tale about the Headless Horseman but an enchanting story about two rival suitors.

Equally enjoyable tales of suspense and the supernatural included in this collection are:

—"The Spectre Bridegroom"

—"The Adventure of the German Student"

—"The Devil and Tom Walker"

—"The Adventure of the Mason"

—"Legend of the Rose of Alhambra"

—"The Governor and the Notary"

—"Governor Manco and the Soldier"

This collection will demonstrate just why Washington Irving is widely recognized as the "Father of American Literature."

Synopsis:

The legendary enchantment of Rip Van Winkle, the gruesome end of Ichabod Crane at the hands of the Headless Horseman of Sleepy Hollow, and other celebrated classic tales from the "Father of American Literature."
