Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0399231528, Hardcover)

This is the story of Rip Van Winkle--that curious fellow, who with his dog, Wolf, ran away from a hard day's work to the Catskill Mountains only to discover in a forgotten valley a strange band of revelers who gave him a drink so powerful he slept for twenty years! His tale still haunts the Hudson River Valley. Indeed, the revelers' bowling pins can be heard in the thunder of the place to this very day.

Here is an unforgettable retelling by Will Moses, an artist of the upper Hudson River, who knows the valley, knows the man Van Winkle, and brings Washington Irving's classic tale stunningly to life with breathtaking landscapes and his unmistakable folk style.

(retrieved from Amazon Thu, 12 Mar 2015 18:08:10 -0400)

A retelling of the tale in which a man who sleeps for twenty years in the Catskill Mountains wakes to a much-changed world.
