Description

Experience the timeless short stories by Washington Irving, The Legend of Sleepy Hollow and Other Stories features The Legend of Sleepy Hollow and Rip Van Winkle, and others.

Washington Irving’s short stories have captured the imaginations of generations since they were originally published in the early nineteenth century. His stories were sometimes chilling, and sometimes reflect society, but they are consistently filled with adventure and a joy to read. 

Irving's timeless characters like Ichabod Crane, the Headless Horseman, and Rip Van Winkle, are among the earliest of truly American literary figures, and remain required reading for students of literature, and have earned their place in the canon of must-reads for those that enjoy a good story.

In this new edition, The Legend of Sleepy Hollow and Other Stories are all complete and unabridged, and come in a highly produced, elegantly designed clothbound edition. This printing features an elastic closure and a new introduction from Krista Madsen.
