The timeless collection that introduced Rip Van Winkle, Ichabod Crane, and the Headless Horseman
Perhaps the marker of a true mythos is when the stories themselves overshadow their creator. Originally published under a pseudonym as The Sketch Book of Geoffrey Crayon, Gent., The Legend of Sleepy Hollow and Other Stories gave America its own haunted mythology. This collection of larger-than-life tales contains Washington Irving’s best-known literary inventions?Ichabod Crane, the Headless Horseman, and Rip Van Winkle?that continue to capture our imaginations today.
