This is one of Washington Irving's most famous stories, ranking just behind Sleepy Hollow and Rip Van Winkle.

Tom Walker was not the nicest soul you'd ever meet. When he agrees to work with a stranger he comes upon in the woods, more things change than just his fortune. A strange twist of fate not only changes Tom's marital status but also hisstation & profession. A slip of the lip when least expected adds another turn to this classic story of light and dark.

    " I can't believe I have never read this (or seen a movie that does it justice, or payed attention to the real tale). I started off reading this thinking it was a ghost story or scary etc. It's just a fun little tale. If you think you really know the story, maybe read it again. "

    " I was a bit disappointed in the book. There was very little story to it. It was all setting up the book. The movie was much more detailed. "

    " A wonderful little vignette. Very rich and clever. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Christie | 4/17/2011

    " I enjoyed this more than Rip Van Winkle. I definitely wasn't cheering for Ichabod though. Is that mean? At any rate, I see why this story has survived so long and with such popularity. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tom | 4/17/2011

    " Ok. a lot shorted than expected. The film seems to be loosely based on the idea of the story rather than the story itself. A good quick read though "

    " One of my favorite books. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Misty | 4/11/2011

    " Really short yes I know, but I'm still in my Halloween reading mode, so sue me. Not much to say except that it will always be my favorite American short story / folk tale. Made me watch the Disney cartoon when I was done :)

    "

    " Whaaaaat? This story was more focused on the "love" part than the actual headless horseman. Colour me disappointed! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Carol | 3/26/2011

    " A very quick and interesting read. I enjoyed it, and we've heard of the Headless Horseman all our lives. This is where he comes from. Great for Halloween, and could be a fun page turner for families during the season. Makes you want to carve your pumpkins. Enjoy! "

    " Not much of anything really happens. "

    " I read this the other day because it was short and sitting there on my Kindle! This story has always freaked me out!!! But it was nice to read it as an adult, absorb all the descriptive language and be impressed with how well Disney did with the cartoon! Check this one off the list. "

About the Author
Author Washington Irving

Washinton Irving (1783–1859), American essayist, novelist, and historian, was born in New York to a wealthy merchant. He studied law, but because of his delicate health, his family sent him on a tour of Europe, where he collected material later used in his stories and essays. The first American author to achieve international fame, his literary career served in many ways to consolidate the cultures of the United States and Europe.
