Washington Irving is considered the first "American" author. His stories are rich in imagination, history & description of the years before the Revolution; when the lifestyles of the settlers reflected those of their homelands. This is an outstanding collection of four of Irving's best-known & most-loved tales:"Rip Van Winkle", "Legend of Sleepy Hollow", "Old Christmas" and "Knickerbocker Tales". Highly recommended to anyone who loves reading a good story.
