"The best judges of these matters...maintain to this day that Ichabod was spirited away by supernatural means..."
Don't lose your head. Spawning a legion of films, writings, and television, and The Legend of Sleep Hollow has proven itself not only one of America's most abiding, but beloved, works. Originally published in 1820 in Washington Irving's short story collection, The Sketch Book of Geoffrey Crayon, Gent., this tale of New York's Hudson River Valley in the wake of the American Revolution introduces the iconic characters, Ichabod Crane, the Headless Horseman, while brimming with Dutch culture, regional history, and ghoulish stories to frighten and delight.
Reprinted by a small American publisher based in Carlisle, Massachusetts, whose mission is to reprint historical works, telling authentic stories of people, places, ideas, and history. These enduring works engage cultural travelers, enrich communities, and inform future stewards for generations to come.
