Rip's a good natured loser, trying to be happy despite a bad marriage and major poverty...until the day he helps a stranger in need, winds up at a weird picnic in the woods, parties too hardy, falls asleep-

Because when Rip wakes up, the Earth has-changed. Everyone and everything he knows has-vanished. Wife, family, dog, home, even his country-gone. Rip's terrified, trapped in a new world, pulled out of place, torn out of time...

But what seems to be the gods' cruelest joke-might be their greatest gift...

About the Author

Washington Irving (April 3rd, 1783-November 28th, 1859) is considered one of the greatest writers of his time.

Washington Irving was born in New York City in 1783. He lived in the United States, England, and Spain (where he served as an American diplomatic attache). A prolific author, Irving wrote The Sketch Book of Geoffrey Crayon, Gent., Diedrich Knickerbocker's History of New York, The Alhambra, and biographies of George Washington and Christopher Columbus, among other works. He is best remembered, however, for his two most famous stories, "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow" and "Rip Van Winkle."
