The Legend of Sleepy Hollow and its a fantastical tale of The Headless Horseman is one of the most famous ghost stories of our time. Published in 1819, the story follows Ichabod Crane, a lanky schoolteacher from Connecticut who moves to Sleepy Hollow, a quiet but haunted New York village said to be bewitched, as “a drowsy, dreamy influence seems to hang over the land.” The awkward newcomer meets and falls for Katrina Van Tassel, the daughter of a prosperous farmer, but finds himself in stiff competition for the young heiress’s affections with the brutish Abraham “Brom Bones” Van Brunt. After Crane’s plans to win over Katrina go astray, he runs afoul of the fabled Headless Horseman, rumored to be the ghost of a decapitated Hessian soldier from the Revolutionary War who roams the valley in search of his missing head.

American author Washington Irving’s short story, set in the late 1700s, has become so popular over the years that the characters and the events chronicled have transcended into American folklore. Fans and scholars alike have speculated on whether there’s any truth to the tall tales depicted throughout. What if The Legend of Sleepy Hollow was not a mere fable, but fact?

The Headless Horseman of Sleepy Hollow, a new book in the Dark series from Osprey Publishing, not only explores the possible truth behind the legend, but also weaves a yarn of Irving himself as a supernatural investigator.
