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

Equally enjoyable tales of suspense and the supernatural included in this collection include 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, and Governor Manco and the Soldier.

These stories demonstrate just why Washington Irving is widely recognized as the Father of American Literature. Download and start listening now!

    " As an audiobook, it doesn't quite hold my attention. Although, hearing the original stories does add something. There is a lot more to the stories than the popularized versions, and the original does add something. The stories make more sense now. "

    " I have read Rip Van Winkle, but I'm not sure about the Other Stories; it's okay although very far fetched. "

    " It's true that the foolish one's are always the happiest one's at the end ;-) Rip is probably an idol for many... many people ;) "
