Washington Irving's two most famous stories are combined here. One tells of Rip Van Winkle who escaped the dreadful life of a hen-pecked husband by magical means and the other of Ichabod Crane and the Headless Horseman on their midnight ride. Experience the fright of poor Ichabod when assailed by the headless horseman and laugh at poor Rip who spends a lot of time sleeping to try to escape the headache of a nagging and ungrateful wife.

Washington Irving (1783 1859) was an American short story writer, essayist, biographer, historian, magazine editor and diplomat.

Born in Manhattan at the end of the American Revolution, he was named for George Washington, whom he met as a child of six. As a teenager, Irving lived further upstate and became familiar with the surroundings that provided the setting for his best known works, Rip Van Winkle and The Legend of Sleepy Hollow

    " Both are slightly disturbing stories but it was by Washington Irving so what would you expect? but it was a classic and I saw the movie by Tim Burton so I read it and felt a bit "odd" afterwords, seriouly what happened to Ichabod Crane? "

    " I read this when I was very young. I'm not sure how accurate my rating is when it's filtered through decades of memory. "

    " These are fun stories in spite of the superstition that permeates them, especially since there is humor, at least found in the Headless Horseman, and the possibility of reality in the midst. They take place along the Hudson River. "
