This is an SoundCraft Audiobooks production – audio-enhanced with music and sound effects – of Washington Irving’s classic tale of horror and suspense, “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow” – complete with sound effects and a musical soundtrack. It relates the story of Ichabod Crane, the lanky Tarrytown schoolmaster who is vying for the hand of the local beauty Katrina Van Tassel, along with local strongman and bully Brom Bones. After attending a party at the Van Tassels’ one fall night, Crane learns of the legend of the mysterious and spectral Headless Horseman, who rides by night and terrorizes those who dare to travel Tarrytown by night. Traveling home after the party that night, the superstitious (and romantically crestfallen) Crane spies a fellow rider in the woods. A rider…without a head!
An American Halloween tradition since its publication in 1820, Irving’s tale is a classic of the genre and a thrilling holiday yarn.
