This is such a classic tale...one that I know well even though this is the first time I've actually read it. Growing up on Long Island, NY, I remember visiting Washington Irving's home in Tarry Town as a child and hearing the story of Ichabod Crane at that point. I also vaguely remember watching the 1948 Disney version when I was younger (and I just re-watched on youtube...amazing how much the coquettish Katrina resembles Disney's Cinderella! ;)). However, I am so glad that I finally read Washington Irving's story, effectively set in the framework of early post-Revolution America, with its beautiful descriptions of the Hudson Valley region and eerily suspenseful language which really leaves the reader wondering "What REALLY happened to Ichabod Crane?"
