A wonderful classic!

This is a wonderful book that everyone with an interest in classical style (Victorian-era?) writing should sample. Washington Irving was a surprisingly good writer and was highly respected in his time. This collection of stories provides the reader with a clear idea of who he was and why he was embraced by the reading public during his time. For us, he seems best known for 'Rip Van Winkle' and 'The Legend of Sleepy Hallow' and both of those short stories appeared for the first time in this collection. Irving?s descriptions of the countryside are glorious and are at times poetic in nature. People just don?t write like that any longer and it is rather a shame.
