Legend has it that the town of Sleepy Hollow is haunted by the ghost of the terrifying Headless Horseman. Ichabod Crane, the town’s superstitious new school teacher, is about to find out if the legend is true. Ichabod has his heart set on marrying the beautiful heiress Katrina Van Tassel and acquiring her father’s extravagant wealth. But local boy Brom Bones is also competing for her hand in marriage. He is willing to do just about anything to win her, including prey on Crane’s overactive imagination. This is an unabridged version of one of American writer Washington Irving’s most famous short stories, which gave rise to the American Gothic genre of writing. It was first published in 1820.
