The legendary enchantment of Rip Van Winkle in the Catskill mountains; the gruesome end of Ichabod Crane, who met the Headless Horseman of Sleepy Hollow; the Spectre Bridegroom who turned out to be happily substantial; the pride of an English village and the come-uppance of the over-zealous Mountjoy—these witty, perceptive and captivating tales from the "Father of American literature" range from fantasy to romance.
