Read-It Wednesday: The Legend of Sleepy Hollow and Other Stories

Image result for The Legend of Sleepy Hollow and Other Stories (Penguin Classics) by Irving, WashingtonWashington Irving created quite the tale when he published his short story The Legend of Sleepy Hollow. Little did he know that this tale would become a classic told over and over again as Ichabod Crane escaped the infamous Headless Horseman, a frustrated hessian from the Revolutionary War. However, this is not his only masterpiece. Rip Van Winkle and The Spectre Bridegroom also belong to him. Yet it is the tale of Ichabod’s adventure in Sleepy Hollow that many share this time of year when Halloween is near. Washington Irving was a great write who’s works have survived the test of time.
