Rip Van Winkle and Other StoriesAudiobook CD - 2008
Washington Irving presents a powerful commentary on the social changes of America during the 19th century through two classic tales. First, careless Dutchman Rip Van Winkle consumes too much alcohol and tumbles into a deep slumber. Waking up 20 years later, Rip, who slept through the American Revolution, finds himself in trouble after professing his loyalty to England. Next, Ichabod Crane competes with a rival suitor for the hand of the beautiful Katrina Van Tassel in a haunted New York village.
