About the Author

One of the first American writers to gain acclaim in Europe, Washington Irving was also an essayist, a biographer, an historian, and a diplomat. He is best known for having written the short stories The Legend of Sleepy Hollow and Rip Van Winkle, both of which appeared in the collection The Sketch Book of Geoffrey Crayon, Gent. Though he is best known for his short stories, Irving s written works include social and political commentary for the literary magazine Salmagundi, which he helped found, as well as biographies of a number of historical figures including George Washington and the prophet Muhammad. Irving died in 1859 at the age of 76.

I am a biased reader because Washington Irving has always been my favorite author. This a must for any individual who still remembers the magic of his/her childhood readings. As an adult you will appreciate Irving even more. He elegantly takes us back to a world when writing well meant something and creating magical illusions and poetical description when recounting history was appreciated.

Tales of a Traveller by Washinton Irving is a mostly interesting read. The book is a collection of small stories with the author serving only as a means to hear these tales from other characters in the book. The locales and stories vary greatly, ranging from good fun, to morals of living, to more serious tones of dangers and trials. It is truly enjoyable in that it is hard to tell where the story will go sometimes between the different tales. A must read for lovers of 19th century literature!

4 different stories together in one volume. Writing style is enjoyable.
1. Men gather round a hunting table and tell ghost stories. None are terribly frightening, but well written and some suspense.

2. An aspiring author's anecdotes of a life with a variety of experiences. Okay writing, not terribly engaging.

3. Travelers in Italy along a road plagued by robbers. Tales within tales about the lives of robbers.

4. Pirates and treasure! Stories about treasure hunters searching for booty left behind by pirates.
