One of America’s greatest gothic tales, this horror classic takes place in a small New York town on the edge of the forest where whispers of a horrifying ghost are slipping from one person to the next.
School teacher, Ichabod Crane, is new to the small isolated town of Sleepy Hollow. It isn’t long before he hears the terrifying tales of a headless horseman who plagues the town at night. The ghost rumours torment him as he travels back through the forest each evening. It isn’t until he’s making his way home after a party one autumn evening that he begins to wonder whether the blood-curdling tales could be true.
First published in 1820, The Legend of Sleepy Hollow is considered a classic of American literature. With themes of mystery, gothic legend, and the supernatural, this spooky tale is the perfect ghost story for misty evenings.
