RIP VAN WINKLE by Washington Irving
One autumn day, Rip Van Winkle wandered into the hills, and his life was never the same again. After encountering a group of mysterious men, he took a nap so long that upon waking, he found his gun rusty and his beard grown a foot long! Washington Irving’s classic tale of the man who slept for twenty years, first published in 1819. (Goodreads)
