Rip Van Winkle and Other Stories

Rip Van Winkle and Other Stories Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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