Book description
In this adaptation of Washington Irving's beloved story, acclaimed painter Thomas Locker takes one of America's favorite legends and weaves in the beauty of the rugged Catskill Mountains. Rip Van Winkle, a poor farmer, is out hunting one day when he comes upon a strange company of men playing ninepins. When Rip samples their brew, he falls into a deep sleep for 20 years, eventually awaking bearded and gray in a vastly changed world. This classic tale is enhanced with the unique artistry of Locker, who has made more than 20 trips to the Catskills to study and paint the magnificent landscape in which the story is set.
